Opera 9.5 gets better fraud protection

Posted on Saturday, June 07 2008 @ 00:50:34 CEST by

Opera Software announced a partnership with Haute Secure to deliver a Fraud Protection feature for Opera 9.5.
Available in Opera 9.5, the upcoming new version of Opera’s Web browser, Fraud Protection featuring HauteSecure technology prevents users from accidentally or unknowingly downloading rogue malware designed to steal personal data such as credit card numbers, passwords and other identity information.

“When someone downloads Opera, we make a commitment to do everything we can to keep them safe,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. “Today we’ve extended that commitment beyond the browser to protect our users from malware that tries to attack when they visit a compromised Web page or that they may unintentionally try to download. Haute Secure’s prevention technology is reinventing Web-based threat detection and we look forward to working together in protecting our users all over the world.”

Together, Opera and Haute Secure block Web sites known to distribute malware as well as protect Opera users from downloading software from links designed to trigger malicious attacks. The combination of the industry’s largest database of known malware distributors from Haute Secure and Opera’s Fraud Protection architecture enables Opera users to secure their entire computers proactively from malware that threatens the security of personal data.

“Malware innovation is morphing malicious software at a pace so rapid, it makes current security technologies useless in protecting web users from harmful attacks,” said Steve Anderson, co-founder of Haute Secure. “Today’s web users face more threats than ever before and Haute Secure is solely focused on building best-of-breed malware protection that prevents users from becoming crime victims just by browsing the Internet. With Opera’s dedication to keeping its users secure, our partnership is protecting more than 20 million web users from malicious attacks.”

Built specifically to keep consumers safe from constantly evolving malicious software prolific across the Internet today, Haute Secure delivers the only complete way to protect a user’s personal data from Web-based malware. In addition to core technology that predicts, warns and protects users from hidden threats, Haute Secure has developed an additional layer of community protection that harnesses the collective intelligence of partners and users to ensure data security, and now Opera’s community is a part of this effort.
