NordVPN confirms 2018 breach

VPN provider NordVPN revealed yesterday that a third-party server located in Finland it had been leasing was accessed in March 2018.

The company said
the intruder was able to acquire an expired TLS key from the server, but
otherwise no other data was endangered. The access was accomplished through an
insecure remote management system account that the datacenter had added without
informing NordVPN and while the datacenter deleted the user accounts that the
intruder had exploited it did not inform the company of the incident at the
time it happened.

The company
declared this an isolated incident and no other servers or datacenters were
affected.
