Why NordVPN is still the best
Yes you are here because you heard that NordVPN was hacked, its servers were seized and its not safe. This isn’t true and the fact of the matter is that the hack shows how well protected you are with NordVPN.
Firstly they openly reported the issue, unlike other provider who have kept quiet. Put simply, this was not a targeted attack against NordVPN – as the media has discovered and at least two other VPN services were affected. What’s more, there’s a chance that other services (VPN providers and cloud based business) that rented servers from the data centre could also have been affected.
Furthermore the incident effectively showed that the affected server did not contain any user activity logs. Plus, it is not possible to decrypt any ongoing or recorded VPN session even if someone obtained private keys from VPN server. Perfect Forward Secrecy (with Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithm) is used by NordVPN. Keys from VPN server are used only to authenticate the server and not for encryption.
