Opera vulnerability, marked forbidden instead of update?

I've noticed that www/opera was marked FORBIDDEN because of a security hole:

The opera software compagny advisory indeed mark this bug as high severity, and mention that there is an update to fix it.

I am not familiar with the security process in ports, but would not it be better to update the version? Marking it FORBIDDEN do not do much for the userbase that does already have it installed.

I've bumped the versions in the Makefile
OPERA_VER?=     12.11
OPERA_BUILD?=   1661
and made a `make makesum reinstall`, there was no apparent problem.
