Obviously anyone know about this news.

NordVPN, a virtual private network provider that promises to “protect your privacy online,” has confirmed it was hacked.

Now the question is, every vpn providers commit to protect your privacy online but how can we believe that they speak truth?

I think it's totally facked news.
NordVPN is one of the most trustful VPN that never controls hackers or never monitor you.

It's true that NordVPN was breached in 2018 when a hacker exploited an unsecure remote management system.

In an official statement (21 October, 2019), the company explained how a data center based in Finland, which NordVPN leased, was accessed in March 2018. The hacker was able to exploit an “insecure remote management system” operated by the data center owner.

NordVPN said that the server did not contain any activity logs and that the company does not store user credentials, meaning they couldn’t possibly be compromised. It added that there were “no signs that any of our customers were affected or that their data was accessed by the malicious actor”.

Nevertheless, I still consider NordVPN trustworthy. With this incident, it learned important lessons about security and would be more secure. (smug)
