Safer Internet Day

Today is Safer Internet Day. Originally started in 2004, Safer Internet Day aims to raise awareness of emerging online issues. One such issue very close to us at GoTrusted is, of course, digital privacy. Our VPN service believes in the idea that people deserve privacy and safety browsing the internet and we work very hard to ensure that that remains possible.

Our digital lives are so interconnected with our regular lives that it's very important to be diligent in how we use the internet and who we allow access to our information. Something as simple as using an unsecured hot spot can result in your sensitive accounts being compromised. There's no reason your information should be going anywhere that you aren't fully aware of and that's just one of the things our VPN service can help with.

Port Fail Vulnerability Leaking Real IPs of Users on Some VPNs

“Port Fail Vulnerability Leaking Real IPs of Users on Some VPNs"

A recent report published by Hacker News (http://thehackernews.com/2015/11/vpn-hacking.html) released their findings about a vulnerability present in some major VPN providers. The vulnerability left VPNs utilizing port-forwarding open to a specific kind of attack that could leak a user's real IP address. This can compromise the privacy and security users are looking for when using a VPN service.

We wanted to assure our customers that the GoTrusted VPN service was not affected by this vulnerability. We take all necessary steps to prevent issues that could compromise our customer’s privacy. We strive to be pro-active in our work to prevent issues like this from ever occurring and leaving our customers vulnerable for any amount of time.

Verizon Tracking Customer's Online Activity

A recent article published by the Electronic Frontier Foundation has brought to light some startling news. Verizon Wireless is modifying its users' traffic while on their network to insert a tracking code that allows websites to monitor your browsing habits regardless of your privacy or cookie settings on your computer, overriding end-user privacy settings.  This tracking affects all browsing data through HTTP connections (regular web traffic), including application data. While Verizon claims to be using it to enhance advertising, it also opens the door to gross breaches in user privacy.

The header is nearly invisible and remains even if a user deletes all of their browsing data and cookies. The tracker is not optional or able to be disabled and even tracks users while in the 'Private Browsing' mode of their browser. It also bypasses several other privacy functions, such as 'Do Not Track' option on some devices. 

The tracker only reads plain text and isn't able to read encrypted traffic so encrypting your connection is the only way to prevent the tracker from recording your data. You can use HTTPS, an encrypted proxy, Tor, or a VPN service like GoTrusted. Only a VPN or Tor will provide full protection in this case.


The news doesn't stop with Verizon. AT&T has said they are also testing a similar tracker for use on its networks and you can likely expect other carriers to follow suit.
