As reported by Engadget, The Register and Security Intelligence, a security flaw was found in several VPN services offering port forwarding.
This vulnerability, dubbed “port fail,” allows attackers to unmask the real IP addresses of customers using VPN services with port-forwarding capabilities.
ExpressVPN’s VPN servers do not support port forwarding and are not vulnerable to the security flaw. Forwarded ports in routers using ExpressVPN will not go through the VPN tunnel.
