Cure53 and F-Secure audited ExpressVPN’s macOS, Linux, and Windows apps
BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, November 24, 2022 /CNW/ — A leader in consumer privacy and security ExpressVPN validated the security posture of all of its desktop applications through three new independent audits by respected cybersecurity companies, Cure53 and F-Secure. The three new audits come just weeks after KPMG audited ExpressVPN’s no-logs policy, underscoring ExpressVPN’s dedication to third-party privacy and security audits.
Cure53 tested ExpressVPN’s macOS and Linux desktop apps through white-box penetration testing and source code audits. Ratings confirm that apps are secure against cybersecurity threats from malicious adversaries. It also validates the extensive work done by the engineering and security experts at ExpressVPN to create a safer and more open Internet for millions of people around the world.
F-Secure also reviewed ExpressVPN’s Windows v12 application through penetration testing and source code auditing, and found no significant weaknesses. The audit verifies that ExpressVPN’s latest Windows desktop app cannot be manipulated to leak information, such as a user’s IP address, outside of the VPN tunnel. This also confirms that the application is not susceptible to remote code execution attacks.
Having all ExpressVPN desktop apps audited means users can go online with confidence that their privacy is protected.
