“If your VPN provider retains logs and turns over user data to law enforcement, what is the point?”
>NSA attacks on VPNs :
>At the end the Silk Road Creator’s Dread Pirate aka Roberts Ross William Ulbricht
fatal error has been to use A FUKIN
#VPN to access in Silk Road
and not TOR itself .
– 9 points that must not be underestimate about VPN …
1) Well the same VPN owners tell how much wrong is their job :
“Our VPN service and VPN services in general are not designed
to be used to commit illegal activity.” :
from Hide your Ass?
So in their opinion what activity should be executed on their service ?
Just not be traced for advertising commercials and/or statistics plans ?
No, Instead get : YOUR ASSES EXPOSED
2) ********** – *********** Hits=1 VUPEN ,
they don’t even know that they hit me but they know
that they hit VPN and they will ask Customers IDs ,
In summary :
using ipfilterX they can’t know if an ip/machine is online ,
ipfilterX works as a stealth fighter engine ,
it’s invisible to enemies radars ,we can’t tell the same for VPN ,
it’s true that your ip is behind the VPN ip but
for the reason at point 1 VPN won’t cover you , all the opposite .
3) The speed of download and upload behind a VPN is a very failure ,
your downloads will never be fast or faster , same for uploads ,
your data must go through the VPN servers then be released outside
and viceversa for the input data .
When a VPN is at its almost full overload the DL/UPL speed are equals
to those of DialUp users .
So what benefit is this ?
And I don’t want to add how many users have problems
just connecting to VPN…
4) The cost . Well an average VPN costs around 6$ X month .
(thinking there’s a good VPN when in my opinion there’s not)
And those are like 72$ x year .
72$ to receive what ? Not anonymity , not performances
or any sort of benefits ,not something that you paid for .
Yes you receive only one beautiful thing :
THE ILLUSION TO BE PROTECTED BEHIND AN ILLUSION .
5) VPN are still and won’t be able to protect you
from various Net Menaces like Malware, Malicious Hosts, Spammers,
Serial Ddosers, Flooders, etc. instead ipfilterX actively does.
6) VPN are often used as BOTNETS , so your bandwidth
will be wasted to carry on attacks to people
that you don’t even know , websites , portals , etc.
7) After a VPN disconnection your real IP is EXPOSED .
It’s unavoidable because of temporary problems in your ISP
or some software problem related to your LAN ,or whatever ,
your Internet and/or your VPN connection will fall at some point.
You will not get a warning or an alarm and you will continue
to browse the net or sharing files over P2P Networks
as never happened because you did not notice but it’s done,
your computer IP is now exposed for everyone to see.
The evil that comes with this event is that
you won’t realize of what happened
your computer IP and your privacy will be compromised
as you never used something to protect you ,
you will be like naked over a scanner ,
and after all the boring stuff you did , the price you paid for ,
the slow and average service you got ,
at the end you will finish EXPOSED .
8)VPN SERVERS ARE CONTROLLED BY FBI :

>In summary :
Slow service if not when no service at all .
Limited Bandwidth .
Danger to get real IP exposed during VPN disconnection.
Subjected to Law as anyone else .
I would name the three things above :
The three Laws of the Virtual Private Networks ,
equal to V.P.N. =U.W.O.T.A.M.
Useless Waste of Time n Money.
Wake up people , stay out from VPN , save your money ,
and turn your attention to our daily job .
We care about you and your privacy .
We fight for you .
We won’t leave you behind .
Trust in us as we trust in you .
>This story reported by New York Times brings a big question : WHAT IF ..
What IF there are many VPN controlled remotely by US.GOV or UK.GOV or AU.GOV , etc.
as the History teaches , if they must control then THEY CONTROL ,
regardless of the technologies that they have to check ,
regardless of the people that own these technologies .
Hence think well about to WHO you are going to trust and entrust your privacy data,
ipfilterX opposite to the above view doesn’t ask you anything ,
either it won’t be able to know anything ,
it will avoid to get questions and will deny enemy abilities to know
about you .
HERE THE ARTICLE : ”They thought these phones protected their anonymity, but they didn’t,”
said a senior intelligence official based in Europe.
Even without personal information,
the authorities were able to conduct routine monitoring of phone conversations.
