IP Leak Vulnerability in Port Forwarding Feature
Last week, we, along with several other VPN providers, were notified of an IP address leak vulnerability when the port forwarding feature (disabled by default) is used. We deployed a fix quickly after the initial report, however, earlier today, we discovered some edge cases where our fix is incomplete.
We are in the process of deploying an improved fix on all of our VPN gateways as well as releasing new clients. We will update this thread when the fix has been deployed and new client installers are available.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be assured that we take privacy very seriously and will be notifying all of our customers of what happened and any steps they need to take.
Note: We have now published new client installers, please visit https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/forum/discussion/19317/new-mac-windows-clients-v-52-released for more information, or download updated installers from our website.
