FBI uses PureVPN's 'non-existent' logs to track down internet stalker

No longer operating under the illusion that the internet offers a mask of anonymity, increasing numbers of people are turning to VPN software to protect their privacy and mask their identity online.

But a recent case shows that the FBI used the logs of PureVPN to track down a user believed to be an internet stalker. This may make PureVPN users think twice about just how anonymous they really are, particularly when the company claims: "We do NOT keep any logs that can identify or help in monitoring a user's activity."

Just before the weekend, the Department of Justice revealed that a Massachusetts man had been arrested and charged with cyberstalking a former roommate as well as her friends, family and a.ssociates. Ryan Lin is accused of stalking Jennifer Smith online, as well as posting intimate photos of her, doxing her, and setting up fake profiles linking her with s3xual fetishes.

Lin is said to have "carried out a relentless cyber stalking campaign," and he is alleged to have used Tor, anonymized online testing services and PureVPN in an attempt to protect his identity. Unfortunately, for Lin, he appears to have made the mistake of using a work computer in his alleged stalking campaign, and even though this had been formatted after his employment was terminated, the FBI was still able to gather data from the hard drive. As shown in a document shared by The Register, this includes:

Artifacts indicated that PureVPN, a VPN service that was used repeatedly in the cyberstalking scheme, was installed on the computer.

What will be of concern to anyone who believed that PureVPN offered complete anonymity is the FBI statement that:

Further, records from PureVPN show that the same email accounts -- Lin's Gmail account and the teleprtfx Gmail account -- were accessed from the same WANSecurity IP address.

While it's fair to say that this is an interesting case, what's most interesting is the revelation that PureVPN's claim of "no logs" is not, strictly speaking, true.

I laugh at people who think they can hide behind these Proxy's. To a certain extent you're good, but if the gov wants you man, they'll find you no matter what.

Exactly they use that no logs bullsh*t to promote but its false advertisement. Most of the time mother fu*kers not reading the small print. Which probably explains that law enforcement can get a hold of those so called logs.

I wouldn't trust any VPN provider making these claims, when I look at their checkout page and see they accept Pay Pal... Credit cards... Alipay.

And if you're gonna do dirt, don't go to a company with HQ in a country that works with your government officials.

That's what I'm thinking. Your logs may be private to most people who'd try to track you but they've gotta give it up to law enforcement/government if given a court order. They don't wanna get hit with an obstruction charge.

I hope everyone knows that PureVPN is based in China..... Only a dumb-ass would use a VPN based "in China that banned/made it illegal" to there own people from using any VPN in their own country period!!!
