New Android Vulnerability Discovered -- Does Not Impact VikingVPN

A new vulnerability has been discovered in Google's Android operating system that allows a malicious app to bypass some VPN services. Our OpenVPN service is not impacted by this new vulnerability because our data is encrypted at the application layer, before any other app would get a chance to pull the data to route somewhere else.

This vulnerability will affect PPTP and L2TP VPNs that are using the built-in VPN functionality in Android. VikingVPN, being a security-conscious VPN provider, has never supported these types of VPNs due to their inherent security issues with encryption and man-in-the-middle attacks.
