privacy – I clicked on a link that got my ip leaked

The good news is that this is probably not as big a deal as you think. There are a lot of articles (usually written by people selling VPN subscriptions) that make it sound super scary to leak you IP address. This article is a bit more neutral:

Exactly how much information can be learned from your IP address will depend on how your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has set up their network and how they buy and assign IP addresses to their users. The pictures in this article explain it nicely. Most home internet ISPs will assign a unique public IP to each home router, in which case your IP address is unique to you. But some ISPs will put multiple customers behind a NAT so that they all share one public IP address (in particular I think mobile carriers do this because the sheer number of mobile devices would quickly exhaust the 232 possible public IPs). So the first step is to check how your ISP assigns IP addresses.

Next, even if your IP address is unique to your house, that does not mean the attacker will be able to get your address from it. Attackers will look up your IP address in a GeoIP database such as this free one, which is a big lookup table of IP addresses to physical addresses. How does the GeoIP database know your address? It doesn’t. Usually they will know that, say Comcast has reserved a certain block of IPs for, say, customers in northern Atlanta, and so the GeoIP database will just have a pin somewhere in northern Atlanta. In my case, the GeoIP database I linked to has my location wrong by about 500 km.

TL;DR I wouldn’t worry too much about it.


About this:

I have already tried unplugging my router because I was told that my IP address would change.

Did it change? (You can see your IP address my typing “my ip” into google). If it did not change with a reboot, your router may have a very long lease time (sometimes weeks), but you could try logging into your router’s admin page and see if there’s a button to drop the ISP connection or reset your IP address.

email – How could the content of an e-mail get leaked?

My Mother received an e-mail, from some unknown mail adress. The content of the mail, was:
“Hello you should look at this: … “ After this there was an old email correspondence with her lawyer, not really sensitive data, but still. There was a .zip file attached, the file name beeing some long number. She didn’t try to open it or anything.

She is confident with computers, so she would not click on suspicious links in mails and not enter her passwords somewhere easily (of course you can always fall for something, but i don’t belief she did). She also uses a password manager with good passwords for every account.

How could the content of the mails have been leaked? And what are steps to take now?

Why does my IP being leaked with system-wide proxy through webTRC, but it doesn’t happen when I use system-wide VPN

WebRTC manages to leak my IP when I use proxy, but when I use VPN it only shows VPN server’s IP (both proxy and VPN were system-wide). What’s the key difference? Google Chrome was used in both tests (webRTC leak test). https://browserleask.com — site I used to run both tests. It also doesn’t matter whether I use local TOR 127.0.0.1:9150 proxy or remote proxy server. Results were the same.

When passwords of a website leak, are all leaked passwords the same easy to read?

As far as I know, when passwords from a website leak, they leak in an encrypted form. Are all those passwords the same easy to decrypt? My hunch is that a 10-characters-long password maybe gets decrypted in a few minutes, but if a password is 100-characters-long, it takes days or years to decrypt. Does it make sense?

Is setting a very long or difficult password a real protection from leaks? I’m asking even about passwords like passpasspasspass11111passpasspasspasspass with comparison to pass11111.

FREE – LinkedIn database leaked May 2019 | Proxies-free

In May 2016, LinkedIn had 164 million email addresses and passwords exposed. Originally hacked in 2012, the data remained out of sight until being offered for sale on a dark market site 4 years later. The passwords in the breach were stored as SHA1 hashes without salt, the vast majority of which were quickly cracked in the days following the release of the data.
