I came across this a few days ago »vpnblog.info/security-issue-with ··· pv6.html
. Based on this, it looks like anyone using PPTP will have their real IPV4 address exposed if IPV6 is enabled.
Since I use a PPTP client to securly and (anonymously, I hope) connect to some sites, this made me a bit concerned.
My setup is as follows:
Windows7/with an anonymous PPTP client -> Asus 16N router with Tomato Firmware with IPV6 enabled (using Hurricane Electric IPV6 service ) Verizon DSL is my ISP.
Is this a real security flaw, or just some headline grabber babbling at a conference?--
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
