Using Hotspot Shield / Hotspot Shield Elite, PB blocks it?
April 08, 2012 08:03PM
Whenever I try to sign in to Hotspot Shield (now upgraded to Hotspot Shield Elite), I get several blocked servers showing up in PB's status... I checked, and it's the Anti-P2P filter catching it... at least the first part, if I disable that, I get different servers showing up as blocked.

Why is PB blocking HSS servers? Is it a mistake?

Well, hotspot shield is known as a HONEYPOT.
It installs several backdoors on your machine, messes with internal working of internet explorer and a lot of other internal things in the registry.
It in fact MARK your machine and they DO sell your data, plus there are a LOT of spying and content filter, they MONITOR what you do when you browse.

So, i am GLAD it blocks it. When you need a vpn, there are A LOT of free ones for you to choose, but always chose:
1) vpns that can be configured through windows WITHOUT ANY ADICIONAL SOFTWARE
2) VPNs that can be used with OPEN VPN, open source one.

There are DOZENS of those, faster and better than hotspot.

Hotspot is used ONLY by people that DID NOT DISCOVER THE FREE VPN WORLD YET AND DID NOT TEST ANY OF THE ONES I MENTIONED.

google some ones...

[freevpnlist.com]

[www.freevpnaccess.com]

[www.freesstpvpn.com]

This 3 links show some vpns you can install without ANY SOFTWARE. For more sophisticated encryption, search for open vpn free vpns THAT HAVE higher encryption.

Please note that, as per our Why is "Some Company or Site" Blocked? FAQ, PeerBlock doesn't control the contents of the lists.  That's not to say that a bit of discussion about things here is unwarranted, but for the best answers you're probably best off contacting the authors of whatever list(s) contains those IP addresses.  The above FAQ link should help you figure out who to contact.
