Re: How Secure is Freedome Against VPN Traffic Analysis Attack

To run that type of attack they would have to go through an end client. Meaning they would have to access to your machine, most likely through a rootkit, or the VPN servers, by hacking directly into F-secure servers. If they are already on your end client then a traffic analysis attack is the least of your worries. Also, the likely hood of a succesfull traffic analysis attack on F-sercure's server is unlikely to even happen, let alone last long enough to get any useful data.
