DDoS, corrupted servers and user abuses have sent LiquidVPN in hot waters. Its south USA subscribers are facing a VPN blackout until they get their account manually recreated.
Eight of LiquidVPN servers may also possibly go completely offline without notice, LiquidVPN reported today.
The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack affected one of Liquid VPN authorization servers. Users logging on LiquidVPN from these servers might face a temporary suspension of personal unlimited VPN service.
The main database used for authorization has failed.
As a result, LiquidVPN south US subscribers won’t be able to sign in to their accounts taking the usual path. The failover database corrupted accounts of some subscribers to an old, single session plan.
If your account is facing signing issues, LiquidVPN said, shoot a trouble ticket to support for a manual configuration.
Logging Being Enabled on Abuse Reports
The data centre hosting LiquidVPN servers has also reported over 50 misuses of VPN service, including an attack on Bank of America along with distribution of copyrighted, hate and defamatory material.
As a result, LiquidVPN has been mandated to keep logs and other user information to address issues of illegal activities taking place via its servers.
LiquidVPN has clearly asked users to keep a watch on any misuse of their accounts to save itself from further damage.
Summing it Up
The DDoS attacks and misuse of VPN service have compelled Liquid VPN to enable monitoring of user logs and other information.
With an authentication server down, LiquidVPN user might not be able to sign in their accounts until they get it manually reconfigured from LiquidVPN’s support.
It is advised that LiquidVPN users review and abide by terms and policies of their service, and stop any illegal activities that can create legal troubles both for their vendor and themselves.
