Dreaming of a private Xmas? Make it happen with our 83% discount

The holiday season wouldn’t really be the same without all those presents left by “Santa” underneath the Christmas tree.

But most of the times, our busy lives don’t allow us to shop for all those goodies in person and ordering gifts online seems like the most time-efficient solution.

Yet that comes at a cost too. When we shop online, we leave our personal data and bank accounts exposed to hackers, who really don’t believe in such obsolete concepts as “Christmas kindness”.

However, there is a solution and a way to keep online snoopers at bay. A CyberGhost VPN subscription enables you to stay safe from online scams. Of course, we won’t magically refill your bank account, but we will keep it protected from digital thieves.

If this is a decision you’ve been postponing lately, now it’s the time to finally invest in a truly efficient and simple online privacy solution. Since we are having our Christmas sales, you can purchase a 7-year plan for a staggering 83% discount.

WiFi breach makes devices vulnerable to hacks, but there is a solution

Much to everyone’s concern, there have been discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs), notes krackattacks.com.

The “Krack” attack works by exploiting the “handshake” that a WiFi network and a device give to each other when the latter wants to join. Usually, the two decide on an encryption key for all future traffic, meaning that each device will only be able to read data if it has that key.

“Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected,” wrote security researcher Mathy Vanhoef, whose work was noted by the US government.
