>>If they stray away from security/privacy policies the will get called on it pretty quickly.
>Oh, sweet summer child. You are now aware that you know next to nothing about your VPN provider's management, the people they hire,
>and the data centers they do business with.
There are corporations that have to rely on commercial VPN services as well other services. A bit more expensive but, they need to rely on their data to be secure.
You have to understand which services are proven to be reliable. Plenty of reviews out there what have shown to be flawed at the time they were tested. My service
gets high reviews, kind of expensive, but I do know a fatal flaw that dnsleaktest.com will say, no issues. But I can patch that. But again it is the highest ranking service
by cnet, etc. Again it has a flaw that dns leak tests will say no issues.
>You can cut out some of the middle men and set up your own VPN service, but the trust problem is intractable.
Any way you look at it there would have to be a middle man. Service is needed to accomplish these either way.
>>Every computer scholar, ethical hacker says use a VPN.
>I'm pretty sure it was Bruce Schneier who said "VPNs protect your data, Tor protects [your privacy]".
Tor is fine, developed originally by the US Navy. Distrust huh. It is used by military, law enforcement
today just as well. It can be exploited just as well. Setting up hundreds of servers in a week would
be basically trivial provided they have enough resources. Possible fatal flaw is timing attacks.
Where if one can see your internet traffic in the entry node, and the exit node and correlate
these. Governments. etc with enough resources could set up a hundred servers in a week
to try to accomplish this.
>Can I have your list of every ethical hacker tho? I need it for a thing.
My list, go fuk yourself. Ha ha. I
Every ethical hacker? Surely though you do know what term 'ethical hackers' are commonly refereed to as
to begin with?
What thing though do you speak of for you thing?, your college course?
Gonna be into computer security I assume? Computer security, you and everybody's mother wants to be t
hat. Ain't gonna happen. Sorry if that is your angle. You have to know your shit, big time, like everything.
I secured a network of a up and coming executive for one of the most known medical corporation in the us.
He had higher level access to the network, to work from his mansion, I guess I would call it.
If his home network were compromised, it could have wreaked havoc on a lot of things if some talented
hackers, (unethical, what does that term for unethical hackers?) It could have been hacked in moments,
depending. To understand the seriousness of what even losing his connection would be, when securing
the network, this was to be expected, I told him this. That his internet would go out for a bit, it did but did
not come right back on. He was ahhh almost in tears. Like his whole world was over. He was making 3 figures.
I just told him to reset his 'modem.' All was cool.
Mistake, I could have charged him hundreds, maybe an easy grand. But, it was a basic favor for somebody.
60 dollars. Oh well.
I once got a hold of some executives laptops, the largest liquor distributor in the world, literally. Looked though
the contents for a few. literally thousands, I mean thousands of contacts through out the wolr, europe,
warehouses, distributors. Easy info to accesses, or have control of soo many aspects. It was likely worth millions,
this was when XP was going to 7, end of support. I just cringed at the $$ there, but federal prison. Eh it's not my thing
anyway. I just wiped the drives a few minutes after seeing what was there. Moral of this story was, nobody wiped or
destroyed the drives. My part was about ethics.
My list of ethical hackers, again fuk yourself.
