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

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
PHOTOS – VIDEOS – OTHER FILES

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.

Update: Server changes, some removals and a new USA L2TP!

October 8th, 2014

Recently we obtained servers in Taiwan and Italy to give them a trial run. Sadly, the trial is up, and we’d like to know what you thought of them! These servers have unfortunately been terminated and removed, but let us know and if demand and interest is particularly high we’ll bring them back ASAP.

We’ve also run into a bit of trouble with our USA L2TP server over the past couple of days. We’re pleased to announce that we have a brand new L2TP server! Hit update in your BolehVPN configs to get it, or hit up the L2TP Setup page for the new IP details.
