Opera security problem

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

If you use Opera as browser, you need to know that
if you also use it to get your email, there is a
a security problem with storing your password.
Always set your preferences so that you have to type
your password each time that you get your mail.
When you choose the option for Opera to remember
your password, it will be recorded unencrypted on
your hard drive.
