WebRTC Vulnerability

I have a leak when connected to the VPN?

If you find you have a leak when connected to the VPN it would be a good idea to use an OpenVPN connection.

A vulnerability has discovered in WebRTC (Web Real Time Communication), an open-source standard that enables the browsers to make voice or video calls without needing any plug-ins. With a few lines of code websites can make requests to STUN servers and log users’ VPN IP address and the ‘hidden’ home IP address, as well as local network addresses. It a massive privacy hole in two very popular browsers that you should really plug!

Please be aware, this vulnerability only affects Firefox and Chrome browers and only appears to be limited to Windows machines.
