The first four episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 have leaked for free in an online torrent, and it raises serious questions about your online security you need to consider.
The Internet is the modern day Wild West, and there are all kinds of people out there looking for opportunities like today’s leak of Game of Thrones Season 5 to gain access to your information. We understand that as a huge fan of the series, it’ll be hard to ignore the existence of this leak. Maybe you’re even thinking of doing a search online and trying out this whole torrent thing. Don’t do it!
Other than the current crackdown on illegal downloads occurring right now in Australia, hackers, scammers and other such deviates will use fake torrents and your search functions to lure you down false paths with evil intentions. They want access to your details, and they know just how to get it.
There is a solution to such threats. A virtual private network, better known as a VPN, is software that encrypts your internet use so that anyone peering in on your session doesn’t know who you are, or where you are from. It’s a valuable part of the modern Internet user’s arsenal, allowing you to fight back against the increasing amount of cyber-terrorism and privacy invasion occurring out there in the matrix.
finder.com.au recently put together A Complete Guide to Using a VPN, which includes all the information you need to learn about what a VPN is, how it works and what options are available. It includes a detailed comparison of the VPN options available to Australians and Internet consumers around the world.
Getting back to Game of Thrones, however, we recommend looking into Foxtel Play, which provides the cheapest means of watching the experience here in Australia compliments of a current deal giving new sign-ups $15 off the premium movie & drama pack (working out to $30 per months for the next three months). Alternatively, try one of many Internet-TV options - it’s incredibly affordable. Check out our comparison table on all the TV shows available on competing services Netflix, Stan and Presto right here.
