Popular virtual private network service NordVPN confirmed one of its rented data centre servers suffered a breach in March 2018.
In an announcement posted on the company’s website Monday, the VPN provider revealed an attacker accessed the server at a Finland data centre by exploiting the data centre provider’s remote management system, which the company was unaware existed.
NordVPN, which deals with highly sensitive and private activity logs, was quick to reassure its 12 million customers:
“The server itself did not contain any user activity logs; none of our applications send user-created credentials for authentication, so usernames and passwords couldn’t have been intercepted either,” the company wrote.
