Popular VPNs Are Vulnerable To Exploit


Out of all the topics that my listeners inquire about, none is more prevalent than VPNs and VPN security. Unlike what the advertisements seem to indicate (like Norton VPN advertisements you’ve heard on the radio), a VPN is not going to help you keep your network safe. In fact, with most VPNs, your data is much less secure than if you weren’t using a VPN in the first place. Now the NSA has issued an advisory about exploitable vulnerabilities in three popular VPN products. These types of warnings are uncommon and often indicate that the particular vulnerability is a favorite of nation-state hackers versus the basement-dwelling adolescent who is trying to make a buck for a pizza and beer.
