Using a virtual private network (VPN) is meant to help keep you safe and anonymous online, but what happens if that VPN gets hacked? In the case of LimeVPN, it means over 69,000 users have had their personal information stolen and put up for sale to the highest bidder.
As PrivacySharks reports, LimeVPN confirmed that its backup server was hacked and their website is down. If you attempt to visit the website it’s likely to be blocked by your security software warning of a trojan, so best not to try. PrivacySharks also managed to talk to the hacker who breached the server, confirming they also took the website offline and initially gained access through a security hole.
