PureVPN, one of the VPN providers, went through a severe hacking attack on October 4th. Cybercriminals breached into PureVPN content management system WHMCS, where all the clients’ information are stored. This actually happened during the WHMCS system upgrade, at a time offering some a vulnerability hole in the accounts of some clients who did not update it in time. As a result, the WHMCS system of PureVPN was hacked and these breachers sent to all PureVPN clients a fake letter from the founder member of PureVPN, announcing that their account has been suspended and that PureVPN had to hand over all their information to the authorities for further investigation…
This letter was a fake, but indeed a lot of personal data of PureVPN clients has been compromised: name, address, phone numbers… i.e. all the required information when signing up to a VPN offer have such been hacked. And clients have been left for too many hours with much questions not been answered about this security breach: they still do not know what happened to their personal information, after being told: “Don’t worry guys, it was only the Names and Emails of our customers the attacker(s) was able to obtain!”
Some clients are now seriously questioning what exactly happened. They are indeed not sure that this hacking will not happen again. Users are also wondering about the measures taken as far as the security and the privacy mechanisms are concerned, and many questions are now rising. Many clients are looking for the unsubscribe button in the different unclear emails they have received from PureVPN
