Earlier this month we reported on a large security vulnerability affecting Windows VPN users. Now referred to as a “WebRTC leak”, this weakness allows a website to make secret requests to STUN servers via WebRTC and sidestep a VPN tunnel to determine a user’s real IP address. Scary, Right? We thought so too and started working on a fix immediately.
How to Fix a WebRTC Leak for Good.
Even though there was a patch made available as a chrome app, a recent chrome update over the past weeks rendered these useless. Luckily, users can now breathe a sigh of relief as TorGuard just released an updated version for Windows Vista/7/8 users that fixes the WebRTC leak. This update goes beyond a simple patch and actually fixes the root issue in Windows networking.
TorGuard Windows users can now take advantage of this new update by clicking the update notification on the bottom of the TorGuard lite app. This will automatically install our very latest version which protects against the WebRTC leak. This is one update you don’t want to miss!
