one of its data centers was accessed in March 2018

I think that's the story.

Instead of immediately coming out and saying "There has been a breach, this is what we found and here is what we are going to do to correct it" they just kept quiet.

I get the feeling that NordVPN has a bigger marketing team than security team.

It certainly isn't, don't know how I did that! Must have caught the touchpad.

I've been looking for a vpn for a new setup and I've been reading around here, but isn't TechCrunch owned by Verizon?? They have a vpn service of their own, that would mean that TC is a competitor. At the same time, anonymous researcher? Who would cite an article like this..
(source that about TC, https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180807/08182440385/verizon-launched-vpn-without-bothering-to-write-real-privacy-policy.shtml, and more credible source and a bit more informative https://restoreprivacy.com/nordvpn-hack/ )

Also, as I'm new with Linux, just starting out, would a vpn work with it or not really?
