Law enforcement has seized the servers and customer logs for DoubleVPN, a double-encryption service commonly used by threat actors to evade detection while performing malicious activities.

DoubleVPN is a Russian-based VPN service that double-encrypts data sent through their service.

Servers and data seized by law enforcement

The doublevpn.com website was seized today by law enforcement, who stated that they gained access to the servers for DoubleVPN and took personal information, logs, and statistics for the service's customers.

"On 29th of June 2021, law enforcement took down DoubleVPN. Law enforcement gained access to the servers of DoubleVPN and seized personal information, logs and statistics kept by DoubleVPN about all of its customers. DoubleVPN’s owners failed to provide the services they promised," says the now-seized doublevpn.com website.

"International law enforcement continues to work collectively against facilitators of cybercrime, wherever and however it is committed. The investigation regarding customer data of this network will continue."

What are they charging them with? I'm sure all VPN companies have horrible things going on in their networks done by their customers.

I am also confused how this is the second Russian VPN to be taken down recently (safe-inet was the other one) while other non-Russian anonymous VPNs stay up.

Russian VPNs with servers not in Russia. I wonder if they are being more targeted due to Russia being enemy of the western governments?
