Planned Maintenance on June, 18th to June, 20th

To update servers and doing other regular maintenance work, it’s necessary to interrupt any ongoing service and start the system anew. This affects all servers and requires the respective hardware to disrupt all operations. At that time existing connections will be terminated automatically.

The following list provides information about which servers are updated on what days at what time. The off time will be between 5 and 10 minutes. Those who don’t want to wait until maintenance is finished are asked to please use a different server.

Thank you for your understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience.

WebRTC Leak: Are you affected?

A lot of fuss for little trouble: Browser video chat renders VPN worthless, it says. Or: Firefox and Chrome reveal original IP address. Or: Deanonymisation via WebRTC. However: Turns out, very few are affected, because the vast majority operates behind a router and it is shielded by default – and even those, who actually are affected, can resolve the issue with little effort.

So, what’s this all about?

It’s about WebRTC, a video chat technique for real time communication directly inside modern browsers like Firefox and Chrome, which, as a side effect, can help to unveil a user’s original IP address, even though she or he is camouflaged by a VPN. Theoretically. In the real world the possible leak just affects users who are directly connected to the Internet with a modem. The WebRTC makes it possible to read all registered IP addresses inside the network card. All others should be safe, even though they use one of the mentioned browsers. From behind a router, all WebRTC is going to see will be in most cases a bunch of local IP addresses, such as 192.168.178.xxx and alike, which are common in all local networks and therefore worthless in terms of tracking.

U test

If your browser is affected, can be tested very fast on the CyberGhost WebRTC IP detection page. Just open your browser and visit this page: WebRTC Real IP Detection.

webrtc_detection_01

 

If your real IP is exposed, start CyberGhost, clean your browser’s cache (by hitting ‘F5′) and visit the page again. If you’re unlucky and your IP is still exposed, install either the WebRTC Block plug-in for Chrome or the Disable WebRTC plug-in for Firefox.

Encryption – A Guide for Everyone

Did you know that even the great Caesar used a cipher to hide his military
correspondence between 100 – 44 B.C?  The key in this case was simply
to shift to the right by three.

Encryption is not a new concept but it keeps getting more and more complex and useful. We thought that a guide to encryption accessible to everyone would be more than welcomed, either to understand it better or to share it with people who would need it.

Just a short intro: encryption is the process through which information or data is transformed (encoded) in such a way that is unreadable to anyone who does not have the knowledge of the way it was transformed.
The information thus becomes available only to the authorized parties. This authorization works based on keys. Encoding the information is made by using an encryption key while decoding the information is made by using a decryption key.

Encryption

You can read the entire guide here.
