NordVPN, a virtual private network provider that promises to “protect your privacy online,” has confirmed it was hacked.
I have spoken to the people involved in this story and as someone who works in the infosec industry, DO NOT USE NORDVPN
This happened months ago and for a tech company and one with their reputation in my industry, for this to go on for months is unthinkable. There are tons of articles all over the internet with them being listed as one of the best VPN firms and those articles will keep them in business but really this scandal should bury them. For those looking for an alternative and bothered by the log collecting that is a legal requirement in some countries, I highly recommend Mullvad.
Sorry just to clarify, I'm referring to the hack happening months ago, disclosure on hacks is an important topic of discussion. It's important companies protect their client's interest and disclose them ASAP. For a privacy firm like NordVPN to not do so, shows they are more concerned with their financial interests than their client's privacy.
Proton VPN offers some good options as well.
