Data of 20 Million VPN Users Leaked to the Internet
OREANDA-NEWS. On the Internet, data of more than 20 million users of VPN services (virtual private network) were found in the public domain. This was reported by the research group of the organization vpnMentor.
Information belongs to users of the applications UFO VPN, FAST VPN, Free VPN, Super VPN, Flash VPN, Secure VPN, and Rabbit VPN. Publicly available information included electronic mail addresses, text passwords, IP addresses, home addresses, user phone models, and other technical details. The total leakage is 1.2 terabytes.
Each of the VPN services claimed that they did not require user registration, which means they did not register user activity, vpnMentor notes. However, its researchers found several records of user activity on the server.
Representatives of vpnMentor consider that such a leak demonstrates a complete disregard for security rules, which puts users at risk.
