Continuing the discussion from News Story Dump Thread - Stories Only:
The above medium article makes some dark accusations of the already embattled NordVPN. While I had previously made a neutral recommendation about NordVPN, I’m now placing myself strongly in the “do not use” camp, if this accusation turns out to be true.
From what I can tell, and what the article alleges, NordVPN is using a botnet of malware-infected applications to proxy traffic through random people’s home network connections, in the case of Disney+. I’m curious if this is happening for other services as well.
