Most internet anonymity [VPN service] software leaks users' details

http://www.qmul.ac.uk/media/news/items/se/158459.html

     The study of fourteen popular VPN providers found that eleven of them
     leaked information about the user because of a vulnerability known as
     'IPv6 leakage'.  The leaked information ranged from the websites a
user is
     accessing to the actual content of user communications, for example
     comments being posted on forums. Interactions with websites running
HTTPS
     encryption, which includes financial transactions, were not
leaked.  The
     leakage occurs because network operators are increasingly deploying
a new
     version of the protocol used to run the Internet called IPv6. IPv6
     replaces the previous IPv4, but many VPNs only protect user's IPv4
     traffic. The researchers tested their ideas by choosing fourteen of the
     most famous VPN providers and connecting various devices to a WiFi
access
     point which was designed to mimic the attacks hackers might use.


For further details like the name of those tested VPN providers, or the
countermeasures that can save you (Tor wins), ...Etc  you can find the
entire paper here : http://www.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/~hamed/papers/PETS2015VPN.pdf
