Nord VPN got hacked

O boy, if they can't keep their servers secure, how will they keep your network secure?!

Quote:
NordVPN, a virtual private network provider that promises to “protect your privacy online,” has confirmed it was hacked.

The admission comes following rumors that the company had been breached. It first emerged that NordVPN had an expired internal private key exposed, potentially allowing anyone to spin out their own servers imitating NordVPN.

I haven't read it but the news is on day old. The hack was in March 2018. Maybe they were silent for the time.

I read it and it actually impresses me. Yes a system was breached because of an oversight. "How could it have happened, wah wah wah".

But that breach had really minimal impact. Sad that it happened, but a good test nonetheless.

Yes, they were hacked last year, for about a month, but they kept quiet about it. It was finally acknowledged yesterday.

Quote:
The data breach happened in March of 2018, when an unauthorized individual accessed a server the company was renting in Finland. The server had been active for a month beforehand, and the attacker exploited an insecure remote management system left by the data center provider. While the company has intrusion detection systems installed to find breaches like this, it did not predict that it would or could come from a "remote management system left by the data center provider" as it did in this case. NordVPN said it was unaware that that system even existed.
