    Improved Security

    ProtonVPN expects both steps to improve the security of the software. In addition, the community should value the transparency, which should be the core of the internet. In addition to the apps, the developers also operate the VPN service itself, which is primarily intended to impress with data security and protection. Depending on the range of functions, ProtonVPN costs up to 25 euros a month, a free version also exists. The same developer comes from ProtonMail, an e-mail service that is also supposed to impress with its security functions. However, there were already successful attacks on ProtonVPN and ProtonMail.

    Ironically, the victims are users who are concerned about more security on the internet and therefore want to use a VPN tool. Once the malware, a so-called stealer program is stuck in the system. The attackers can tap a variety of objects, including login data and cryptocurrencies. Azorult is one of the most popular of these stealer malware among Russian hackers, it is said. The fake page of Proton is apart from the URL, actually structured exactly like the original page of the right manufacturer and therefore particularly difficult to recognize. Kaspersky has informed Proton of the forgery and has blocked the fake page for Kaspersky users. Most of the Trojan infections have been registered in England, but the malware also infected a previously unknown number of computers in Switzerland.
