LimeVPN Backup Database Hacked

LimeVPN Backup Database Hacked

VPN service LimeVPN has leaked the private information of more than 800 users, including names, email addresses, billing addresses, and mobile phone numbers. Wireguard "key information" and VPN credentials of less than a hundred users were also stolen by the attacker, the VPN provider says via its own website. This data has now been reset.


The attacker claims to have the data of 10,000 users and offers it for sale on the internet. There are also reports that the data of 69,000 users has been stolen. However, those messages are incorrect, according to LimeVPN. "We don't have 69,000 users on our platform," the provider said on Twitter. The data was stolen from a secondary billing server, according to the company.


LimeVPN further reports that there is no indication of misuse of the stolen data. Customers are not required to do anything but are advised to monitor their accounts. Additionally, additional fraud protection is enabled for the affected accounts. The VPN service does not let you know exactly what that means. It is also unclear how the data was stolen by the attacker.
