The chief information officer for ExpressVPN once helped the United Arab Emirates orchestrate a massive cyberspying campaign on computers across the globe.
According to the Justice Department, ExpressVPN CIO Daniel Gericke and two others worked as hackers for hire for the UAE to develop “zero-click” attacks capable of breaking into internet accounts and devices, including those in the US.
Further discussions with LimeVPN have revealed the claim of 69,000 users being affected was actually an activity log total, with the number of live user accounts closer to 800. LimeVPN also confirmed their website has not been hacked and the claim of all private keys being leaked is false. In reality, 25 WireGuard keys used for beta testing were taken. LimeVPN says, “We have reset all access credentials, shut down wire guard servers and separating our billing infra from marketing info.”
A threat actor has leaked a list of almost 500,000 Fortinet VPN login names and passwords that were allegedly scraped from exploitable devices last summer.
