News Tech: Apple asserted that it has already provided a fix after a security researcher stated that iOS VPN (virtual private networks) apps are broken as a result of a bug. ProtonVPN claims that it is only a partial solution.

“At first, they appear to work fine. The iOS device gets a new public IP address and new DNS servers. Data is sent to the VPN server. But, over time, a detailed inspection of data leaving the iOS device shows that the VPN tunnel leaks,” he wrote in a blog post.

VPNs for iOS are unreliable, claims security expert Michael Horowitz.

“This is not a classic/legacy DNS leak, it is a data leak. I confirmed this using multiple types of VPN and software from multiple VPN providers,” he claimed, saying that Apple knows about this flaw for at least two and a half years.

“The fact that this is still an issue is disappointing to say the least. We first notified Apple privately of this issue two years ago. Apple declined to fix the issue, which is why we disclosed the vulnerability to protect the public,” according to Proton founder and CEO, Andy Yen.
