The 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 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."

Doesn't sound like they actually took much then. If DoubleVPN accepted anonymous payment methods, the personal information they have is probably fake. The logs are a bit concerning, but from the wording it doesn't sound like IP were logged, if it's only usage statistics, there's not really anything EuroPol can do with it, except for maybe track the people who happens to be connected at the time of the server seizure.

maybe logs are just a bluff from EuroPol to freak people out.

It looks that way. We'll just have to see if any court cases cite evidence from this raid. The Pure VPN logging scandal was revealed when a court case cited how the FBI tracked down the defendant.

In what nation was DoubleVPN registered? If it’s a business from any of the Nine Eyes nations, they were required by law to have all data recorded from all use by all customers, forever.
