Seven 'no log' VPN providers were hacked, exposing 1.2 TB worth of user logs. Data includes plaintext passwords, IP addresses, timestamps of user connections, session tokens, information of the device, and OS being used along with geographical information in the form of tags.
The VPN providers affected are UFO VPN, FAST VPN, Free VPN, Super VPN, Flash VPN, Secure VPN, and Rabbit VPN. If you have an account with one of these providers, I strongly suggest you delete your account immediately and if you use the same password you use for your VPN account on any other website (which you should never do), change it ASAP.

@nichii I don't recognize any of those VPN providers, but they all sound cheap and dodgy. 😆
The problem is of course that sounding cheap and dodgy (or not) may correlate with being honest and competent or it might not ...
The article gives some well-meaning hints, but there seems to be no way to make sure your VPN provider does what they say.
At least mine (who is not on this list -- phew!) allows connections through openVPN, and support staff was able to help me at two instances -- but that don't mean too much now.
@nichii not surprised
@nichii thankfully, I don't. whew!
