Last updated by Shayne M on January 27, 2016 06:12

A huge security flaw has recently been discovered. The security glitch affects users of Windows OS and some Linux Distros

The vulnerability, essentially known as WebRTC, affects the users of Chrome and Firefox browsers, and enables websites to see the real IP address of users even while they are using a VPN to stay anonymous 

WebRTC does not affect Mac OSX or Android users, 

Windows users, however, need to take additional steps to stay anonymous.
