Another awful vpn company...

Blowfish has some known issues, and is generally weak in 128bit implementation- but as far as I’m aware that has nothing to do with poodle. poodle was tls issue that’s been patched in current software.

Ibvpn offers PPTP however- which is widely known to be absolutely broken, for more then a decade. This is severely negligent. see details here:

l2tp and SSTP also have severe issues. Openvpn is great, but it requires real knowledge and skill to set it up properly- the defaults (like blowfish) aren’t very good… A proper setup needs to be custom compiled/configured- needless to say you wouldn’t use blowfish. These guys seam downright inept.

Full breakdown. pt1

Severely Broken crypto implementation (pptp- 256bits of uselessness)
Blowfish openvpn (I’d bet it’s the default 128bit- if they configured it they would have chosen AES)
Proprietary software, and connection protocols (sstp, l2tp)
Vm infrastructure.
No client egress ip pooling.
Unique individual ip’s and static port forwarding severely decreases security/anonymity.
Connection Logging (and full monitoring- “necessary to enforce TOS”) (Metadata counts…)
Contradictory TOS/PP/advert- nothing illegal allowed but advertise social media & reign unblock (which is clearly illegal ie: iran…etc CFAA anyone?)

Anonymous Coward says:

Full breakdown pt2

Absurd TOS/PP- seriously, read them- cause this is what you’re signing up for)
No segregation of financial/account data from login/network/logs.
One corporation in one jurisdiction for both financial and network operations.

False claims
Stops skype mitm- (claim on website- it’s impossible)
Protection from hackers (even the best vpns can only provide “some protection” from “some vectors” clientside)
No logging (even the privacy policy says they don’t before admitting they do.)
