A Secunia Advisory reports:

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Opera, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks against users. The vulnerability is caused due to input not being sanitised, when Opera generates a temporary page for displaying a redirection when "Automatic redirection" is disabled (not default setting).
