NordVPN has confirmed that it was hacked
The famous company of VPN which is NordVPN said that one of its rented data centers which is located in Finland was accessed without the company’s authorization back in 2018 march.
The attacker gained access to the server by exploiting an insecure remote management system left by the data center provider.
According to NordVPN, the breach was discovered “a few months ago” but the company didn’t announce anything until the company was “100% clear that the each component within our infrastructure is secure.
the Official Company Blog said that “The server itself did not contain any user activity” they also said that “none of our applications send user-created credentials for authentication, so usernames and passwords couldn’t have been intercepted either.”
they also mentioned that when they come to know about the incident, they immediately launched a thorough internal audit to check their entire infrastructure. also they said that “We double-checked that no other server could possibly be exploited this way”
they have taken a measure now only to get more secure by raised the bar to all data centers we are working with. Now, before signing up with them, we make sure that the DCs meet even higher standards.
Hello there! Our service has not been hacked. None of the information available on the one server can be used to impersonate or decrypt the traffic of any other. This was an isolated case of one datacenter. Please refer to our article for more details …

NordVPN also said that when they come to knwon about the vulnerability of the data center ,a few months back, NordVPN immediately cancelled the contract with the server provider and shredded all the servers we had been renting from them.
The expired TLS key was taken at the same time when the data center got access by the hacker
and exploited. However, the key couldn’t possibly have been used to decrypt the VPN traffic of any other server. -said by NordVPN.
