IPVanish “No-Logging” VPN Led Homeland Security to Comcast User

IPVanish, a VPN provider that for years claimed a strict no-logging policy, led Homeland Security to a suspect using a Comcast IP address, court papers filed in 2016 reveal. StackPath, the new operator of IPVanish, informs TorrentFreak that they won't speak on behalf of the former team who have long since left the company. Assurances of security have been promised for the future, however.

On May 4, 2016, Scott Sikes, a Special Agent with the Department of Homeland Security, was engaged in a child abuse investigation.

Acting undercover, Sikes was monitoring a channel on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) when a suspect posted a link. When Sikes opened it he discovered an image of child pornography.

Sikes struck up a one-on-one chat session with the suspect who subsequently posted three more links, each containing the same kind of material. It was later discovered that the suspect had posted 17 other links leading to similar abuse imagery.
