[Update] UltraVPN with Ubuntu / LinuxFiled under: Uncategorized;

Lack of access I can not verify the present, but also with UltraVPN there is a free replacement to ItsHidden.com. The service relies on donations as well as free software, and claims to pursue any commercial interests.
Disclaimer: Please note that the operators view of the unencrypted VPN traffic can. It is not clear who was behind UltraVPN and why the service is offered free of charge. In the forum of UltraVPN Gulli and there has been related discussions. I would not stir up panic or distrust. The service is certainly something to a geo-IP filter bypass, but I personally would not send confidential information about UltraVPN.
