BolehVPN: Among the Top 5 rated VPN Providers in the World

Servers overhauled, Italy is back!

October 27th, 2014

Hi guys!

We’ve just updated all our servers to use 256 bit AES encryption, with our HMAC auth changed to SHA512! This is a step up from our previous cypher, which was 128 bit AES. However this overhaul comes at a slight inconvenience, you will need to update your configurations. Thankfully this is pretty easy with the BolehVPN client. Just head to the Settings tab and hit Update Configurations. If you’re a custom user however, you’ll need to update manually.

We also listened to your feedback on the Italy server and brought it back! It’s waiting for you, just hit Update to see that old friend.

Let us know how everything goes! :)

Update on Hong Kong

October 24th, 2014

We’re experiencing some issues with our server provider for our Hong Kong server. We’ve contacted them to sort this out, but until they reply and we reach a resolution the HK server will be temporarily removed.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Happy Diwali!

Wishing you all a Happy Diwali, may you shine forever in the darkness of life. And if you don’t celebrate, have a happy holiday!

Server Changes

October 22nd, 2014

Hey guys!

We’ve got some new changes to our servers. New Japan servers (These are SurfingStreaming only though!), including xCloak Japan servers for our Chinese friends. This should help with connectivity out of China. As always to get the latest configs, go to the Settings tab of the BolehVPN client and hit Update configurations. If you’re not using our BolehVPN client, you’ll have to update manually.

We also heard your feedback and comments regarding the Italian server, and good news! It’s coming back in the next few days. Stay tuned and stay updated!

 

 

Dropbox Passwords Leaked Online

October 14th, 2014

6070i9236E263B01B8B7AAround 7 million Dropbox usernames and passwords have been allegedly hacked and hundreds have been posted online on pastebin.

The message on the leak mentioned this:

***** DROPBOX HACKED *****

6,937,081 DROPBOX ACCOUNTS HACKED

MORE BITCOIN = MORE ACCOUNTS PUBLISHED ON PASTEBIN

As more BTC is donated , More pastebin pastes will appear

To find them, simply search for “DROPBOX HACKED” and you will see any additional pastes as they are published.

FIRST TEASER – 400 DROPBOX ACCOUNTS Just to get things going…

SEND BTC DONATIONS TO 1Fw7QqUgzbns7yWHH32UnmMxmMMwu6MC6h

COME BACK AND CHECK PASTEBIN FOR NEW DROPBOX DROPS

THE MORE BTC DONATED WILL REFLECT HOW MANY MORE LOGIN AND PASSWORDS

ARE RELEASED PUBLIC.

Dropbox, however, said in its blog that it is not to blame for the leaked passwords and that these were stolen from other, third party services:

Recent news articles claiming that Dropbox was hacked aren’t true. Your stuff is safe. The usernames and passwords referenced in these articles were stolen from unrelated services, not Dropbox. Attackers then used these stolen credentials to try to log in to sites across the internet, including Dropbox. We have measures in place to detect suspicious login activity and we automatically reset passwords when it happens.

Attacks like these are one of the reasons why we strongly encourage users not to reuse passwords across services. For an added layer of security, we always recommend enabling 2 step verification on your account.

Dropbox says it performed password resets when it detected ‘suspicious activity’ on these accounts a few months ago.

To be safe, please do change your Dropbox password and enable 2 Factor Authentication.
