The attacks exploit weaknesses found in routers made by Zyxel, Speedport, and possibly other manufacturers. The devices leave Internet port 7547 open to outside connections

Find out if your VPN leaks your IP address
#vpn #security #privacy

If you use a VPN for privacy, regardless of whether that is your main reason for using it or just a nice addition, you may want to make sure that your "real" IP address is not leaked when you are connected to the VPN. The reason for this is simple: there is no privacy if the device IP leaks. It is highly recommended to run tests regularly to find out if your VPN connection leaks your IP address.
