FBI, Europol shut down ‘crimanised’ VPN

FBI and Europol have worked together to shut down Safe-Inet (also known as Insorg), a VPN service allegedly tailor-made for criminals.

The “bulletproof” service was not only advertised on crime-focused forums, but was reportedly used often for practices like card skimming, ransomware and account hijacking.

Virtual private networks are often forces for good that keep your data secure.

Justice Department officials noted that many of these bulletproof services often run cover for criminals, such as refusing to offer logs or “ignoring or fabricating excuses” when victims complain.

They become “coconspirators” in the crimes they’re enabling, the DOJ said.
