Chrome and Firefox give real IP address VPN user price via WebRTC
Through the protocol WebRTC let Chrome and Firefox the IP addresses of drain VPN users to websites. This can happen in the background. Browsers other than Firefox and Chrome do not suffer from the privacy issue.
Both the desktop versions of Chrome and Firefox as the Android version of Chrome are susceptible; the Android version of Firefox does not seem to be vulnerable. The potential privacy breach can only be countered by disabling WebRTC. Firefox can do so via about: config; Chrome users can simply disable the functionality with an extension . The Chrome version of Android, however, does not support extensions. Gate, which comes with Firefox is not susceptible.
The loophole is, moreover, only abuse if the VPN connection is running locally; otherwise the browser to the “real” IP address does not know. Running the VPN connection from the router, then the IP address of the user at the provider does not find out.Viewing:-157
