French ISP’s Security Tool Makes Users’ IPs Public

French ISP’s Security Tool Makes Users’ IPs Public

French service provider Orange says that troubles with the service intended to reinforce users’ protection against unauthorized downloading have already been fixed. However, the opposition highlights that the security protection is an entire process, not a single product.

Last fall France sadly decided to join a growing team of countries that have provided their authorities the right to disconnect unauthorized file-sharers from the web. That was the point where the French have had to face the frozen reality that will eventually be introduced within a “three-strikes” policy (which is at the moment on procedural hold). In this situation Orange Internet Service Provider has made an attempt to give users the quiet of the mind, when offering an instrument that allows to reinforce the downloaders’ protection against unauthorized downloading for just €2 (which is less than 2.5 USD) per month.

The only trouble with this offer is that it appeared to contain a huge security hole making the IP addresses of every single customer using the service available online. The ISP claims the problem has been already solved, but before (and if) it had been done, the hole also provided a list of IPs of those who had just bought and installed the program as well.

Although people suspected that HADOPI would be fun, they could never even imagine the list of IP addresses available in the Internet. The software Orange sells is intended to protect people from the use of applications that could trigger copyright infringement. In other words, users are kindly asked to pay €2 per month for being forbidden to use peer-to-peer software, regardless of whether it is for legal purposes or not. That is about to be fun already, but the salt is in the establishment. The software is designed in such a way that the application connects to a remote server with a java servlet located on the IP, enabling everyone to see IPs of the users who purchased the software and activated it, as well as IPs of ordinary visitors to the page.

What is of the real concern is a developing war against P2P networks. As many people today are afraid of losing their Internet connection, the majority of those least proficient may suffer from a false sense of protection or unnecessary security risks, while being unaware of the only efficient thing they need to do – control who uses the file-sharing software on their PCs and what for.
