Founder of Free VPN Arrested in International Manhunt, FBI Issues Global Alert


The FBI has issued a global alert for the founder of a Free VPN, Yunhe Wang, and has successfully captured him in Singapore with the assistance of local police. The U.S. Department of Justice has announced ongoing investigations in collaboration with law enforcement agencies in Singapore, Thailand, and Germany. Why has a simple Free VPN caused such a massive uproar? It turns out that it poses significant risks to every Free VPN user. You might have already been sold out many times online.

What Happened?

The founder of this Free VPN, identified as Yunhe Wang, 35, a Chinese national, embedded a botnet within the Free VPN software. This botnet, known as 911 S5, is the largest of its kind ever discovered. Through this botnet, numerous cases of global financial fraud, identity theft, and cyber-attacks have been instigated.

What Happens When You Use a Free VPN?

Wang lured a large number of users with the Free VPN, who unknowingly became part of the botnet. Free is often the most expensive, and Free VPN users have encountered the following issues:

1. Your Browsing Data Sold

Free VPNs hijack users' browsing history, personal information, account passwords, and other sensitive data without their knowledge. This information is sold to advertisers or third parties, severely compromising user privacy and significantly increasing the risk of identity theft.

2. Device Controlled by Hackers

Free VPNs come bundled with malicious software that silently installs "backdoors" during installation. This allows hackers to remotely control the user's computer, making it part of the botnet. Users' computers are forced to send spam emails, participate in DDoS attacks, and other illegal activities. Do you think being watched through your webcam is far-fetched? Think again.

3. Financial Assets Stolen

After using a Free VPN, users' computers are exploited for financial fraud and theft of banking information. Hackers use these compromised devices to steal users' bank accounts and credit card information, resulting in significant financial losses.

Are You Becoming a Victim?

  • If you are currently using a Free VPN product
  • If you have ever browsed sensitive content such as social networks or bank accounts

Then you are likely already infected. Remember, just because you haven't noticed any losses today doesn't mean you are safe.

Fortunately, the FBI has not only issued a global alert but also provided instructions on its official website on <How to Identify and Remove VPN Applications That Contain 911 S5 Back Doors>. Use these instructions to check your computer and avoid becoming the next victim.

This Is Not the First Time

Although the FBI has discovered and addressed this issue, many Free VPNs remain, such as Lao Wang VPN, Lantern VPN, FastMeow VPN, Ant VPN, Galaxy VPN, Tianxing VPN, CoolTong VPN, Seagull VPN, Bee VPN, SuperVPN, SurfVPN, Mushroom VPN, FreeGate VPN, and others. We do not know if these are also aliases for Wang's creations or if users have been suffering unknowingly for a long time.

Finally, remember that this is not the first time such an incident has occurred, nor will it be the last. The "Meteor Accelerator" previously faced similar issues, involving maliciously injecting malware to control users' computers for profit.
