cryptostorm freezes sometimes when disconnecting

Postby jay2007techhh » Sun Jan 01, 2017 5:22 am

My computer specs
Windows 10 (1607) 64x Education edition with all updates
Intel Core i3 CPU @ 1.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000
Cryptostorm widget 3.0.0.64

Sometimes my connection drops, so I click on "disconnect" on the widget. It freezes when it get to the part it says "set dns back to dnscrypt - proxy". Sometimes it'll eventually finish (like 2 minutes) other times it stays frozen.

If it helps, I created "dump file" for "client.exe (32x) from task manager. If you need the dump file, I can "PM" someone with the link

If more info is needed, feel free to ask :D

This happens with me too... but only if I switch off the router, and then try to disconnect via widget... it stalls on the reverting to dnscrypt part.

I suppose your situation is the same, in relation to "dropped connection vs router turned off"... the internet feed is broken and the widget cannot do its job.

I am not sure if this can be rectified or not, since the widgets role is to connect/disconnect; its 2nd function is nerfed if the connection drops or device is turned off.

Uncheck the WebRTC blocking stuff in the widget and this shouldn't happen any more. Just use browsers that can either turn off or block WebRTC connections (like Firefox).

Is there any vulnerability to this? I get this as well sometimes when disconnecting, where it will stop with the progress bar filled and the reason code "set dns back to dnscrypt - proxy". I check my IP though and see it's been set back to normal. I'm just trying to figure out if this is solely a widget issue or if it could similarly be linked back to my IP?

Also happened to me if my firewall rules were too strict. Sometimes for some reason the widget would try and reference a dns belonging to an alternative exit node that I didn't allow through rules, and hence... the stall.

Check your firewall block log, and see if there is an IP that is being denied repeatedly at the same time the widget is switching back to DNSCrypt.

It hasn't happened to me for a while though. The only workaround I found for this was to allow the DNS IP into firewall rule (I have a set of firewall rules for every exit node and every DNS address... eg: when widget loads up and it tries to reach all the addresses relating to CS connection, all are blocked except for the node I wish to reach), and then check periodically to see if it stalls or not if the address is removed.

This issue should be fixed in the latest widget that's on the website (and being pushed if you've got "Check for updates" selected in options), it's version 3.16.0.220.

I'll update the widget thread in a minute with more info on the new features in the latest version:
