Switching to the SHA256 authentication algorithm

News number 2 is that starting November 2nd, 2017, your connection to CyberGhost will be made through the SHA256 authentication algorithm. This change came due to many requests from our users in this sense. If you are using the CyberGhost app, no need to worry on any new configuration set up. However, if you want to install CyberGhost on Linux, routers and other devices, either download a new configuration file from account.cyberghostvpn.com or manually change from “auth md5” to “auth sha256” from the Security tab.

ZDNet: Why building a startup in Romania made more sense to CyberGhost CEO

Robert Knapp, CyberGhost CEO, recently met with ZDNet correspondent Andra Fiscutean to discuss why he decided to found his privacy company in Romania. Here are some excerpts from the article we thought you might consider interesting:

 

*

With €100,000 ($114,000) borrowed from investors and the dream of building a VPN company, CyberGhost, he packed his suitcase, left Germany and moved to Bucharest in 2011. Six years went by, and he still believes Romania is the only place where he could have made it happen.

*

“We would not have been successful elsewhere,” he says. “We would have closed it down in Germany after a year and a half, and in Silicon Valley after a few months.”

*

Knapp, who often wears a pirate flag T-shirt and a black beanie hat when making public appearances, is now among the top entrepreneurs in eastern Europe. A few months ago, he sold CyberGhost VPN to Israeli company Crossrider for €9.2m ($10.5m).

He’s kept the CEO role and hopes to develop his startup further to one day make it the number one player in the privacy-as-a-service field.

Knapp did the math. His €100,000 would run out in Silicon Valley or London in a few months, yet in Romania, he could make his dream happen. “If you want to run an internet startup, you can basically do it from any location,” Knapp says.

*

Because the local market alone is too small for a startup to succeed, Romanian technologists have to think globally from the outset, and this need helps them create products and services that could take off worldwide.

Prevent Petya ransomware attacks with the CyberGhost Immunizer

Hi there, Ghosties!

You never really know what we’re “cooking” these days at CyberGhost! Could be an update to one of our multi-platform apps or maybe… an Immunizer for desktop Windows devices to help you prevent cyberattacks like the recent Petya.

For those of you not yet in the loop on this topic, ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to a computer or its data and demands money to release it. Petya is only of the most recent such cyberattacks, of massive proportions, hitting companies in Europe, the Middle East and the US on June 27th, wreaking havoc for employees and customers alike.

Petya caused computers to stop working, instead displaying a ransom note demanding $300 (£235). The widespread attack affected global and national organisations including the Ukranian National Bank, British advertising firm WPP and logistics company Maersk.

How our Immunizer works & how to download it

In plain words, our Immunizer tricks the Petya ransomware into thinking that the computer it is trying to attack is already infected. Thus, if the CyberGhost Immunizer is installed, Petya will think it has previously infested that PC and will move on, unwillingly leaving it safe.

To download our Immunizer and prevent falling victim to Petya attacks in the future, simply go to this link and then click on the .exe file to install it in the blink of an eye.
