In the hands of criminals allegedly were usernames and passwords of users of the service.


The company Opera Software sent e-mails to 1.7 million of its users warning about the break-in service Opera Sync is designed to synchronize the account in the Opera browser on several gadgets.

According to official reports, last week the staff of the Opera discovered and promptly blocked the attack, but some user information, including usernames and passwords, could be compromised. As noted, all passwords are stored encrypted, but as a preventive measure, the company recommends all users to reinstall them. Currently, the investigation continues.

Over the past few days Opera Software was the second of the companies, advising users to change their passwords on its service. Earlier, a similar appeal was made by the company Dropbox, have offered to reset the passwords of users registered on the service until mid-2012.
