Identity theft
Well this just goes on to show how much of our data be it stored in our systems or browsing online is vulnerable and susceptible to being hacked or mistreated by malicious hands. Therefore it is always important to secure online footprints and privacy and what best way to do that than deploying secure vpn server like PureVPN which provides online encrypted connections. They have some deals going from what I read on my last visit to their website

Offensive Security by the Private Citizen
I'm curious after reading this about whether a private citizen can do anything at all to investigate potential stolen data and illegal activities associated with their finances or business.  In the past I'd had the opportunity to build a honeypot which I was excited about since I always wanted to test out some ideas, build a custom Tor, etc.  But then I got lots of feedback from techs that know about these things to not even touch the project.  Once you attach yourself to something that can be used for illegal activities you risk being implicated, especially due to (as noted in the article) the possibility of law enforcement monitoring various networks, websites and file access points.  I'm surprised, in fact, this article doesn't unequivocally state private citizens not associated with law enforcement should not even consider researching these places.  What's the real rule of thumb in this case?
