TorrentFreak: Leaseweb's website defaced?

Recommended Posts



​Just read this article regarding a defacement of the Leaseweb website (10/05/13). It's mentioned that customer data had also been "leaked" and would be accessible through an index site (which I couldn't find).

​Any thoughts on this, especially on potential danger to AirVPN?

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

All elements point to no risk or hazard. At the moment, it was "just" a DNS nameservers change and subsequent DNS hijack.

We are of course following developments (if any) very closely. Please note that the Air servers passwords do not match with the passwords displayed in the Leaseweb control panel, and that there's no console access from it, therefore if the attackers had obtained access to Leaseweb customers' panels (and there are absolutely NO indications that this could have happened), they could not enter the servers, but they could reboot, erase them, perform IP null-routing. The fact they did not do any of those things (at the moment) shows that they don't have the will or the ability to do so.


Kind regards
