Here at VPNCity, we take your online safety very seriously. In order to provide you with the (awesome) services we do (you’re welcome), we need to make use of a wide variety of software on our servers. Unfortunately, from time to time (luckily not very often), there are security issues and vulnerabilities that can arise.
One of these issues came up last week. According to Carnegie Mellon University, a flaw in a piece of software called ‘PPPD’ (or Point To Point Daemon) was discovered. Although it had the potential to cause serious consequences, our badass ninja developers have already updated all of our servers with a patched and updated version of PPPD, which means that they are no longer susceptible to this bug.
We keep an extremely close eye on our servers, and if anything looks the slightest bit suspicious about how they are working, we are alerted immediately. So even if the flaw had been exploited before we were made aware of the vulnerability, we would have been able to mitigate the consequences very quickly.
After all, being a ninja does require lightning-fast reflexes!
