Security experts detected a new flaw that can expose the real IP-addresses of VPN users. The problem affects both VPN protocols and operating systems and was revealed by the VPN provider Perfect Privacy. The company has already alerted its competitors to the threat, and only after that made it public.

As you know, in today’s increasingly censored world, people are more and more interested in encrypted and anonymous communications. For example, BitTorrent users love using VPNs, as they by default have to expose their IP-addresses to everyone when downloading a popular file, while VPNs allow to hide it. Today it became known that a recently discovered flaw might enable some providers to bypass this feature.

In fact it is a simple port forwarding trick: it turned out that the true IP-address could be exposed by forwarding traffic on a specific port (provided that an attacker uses the same VPN as the victim). This vulnerability affected all VPN protocols and applied to all operating systems. In other words, all VPN providers offering port forwarding and lacking protection against this specific attack were affected. For instance, if an attacker activated port forwarding for the default BitTorrent port, a VPN user on the same network would expose their real IP-address. Regular web traffic was affected in the same way, with an attacker directing the victim to a page connecting to the forwarded port.

All major VPN providers were warned about the flaw last week, and most of them (if not all) have already fixed it – this could be done, for example, by implementing firewall rules at the VPN server level in order to block access to forwarded ports from clients’ real IP addresses.

The good news - the ExtraTorrent's best recommended VPN for torrenting - Trust.Zone VPN has a protection against the vulnerability.
Don't forget - VPN is the best way to secure and anonymize your BitTorrent traffic completely!
