The domain of the VPN service has been seized by Law Enforcement Agencies on 17  January 2022. As per the LE Agency “We have gained access to the vpnlab.net servers and seized the customer data stored within, our investigation is going on”.

Law Enforcement Agencies are doing fantabulous work against the cybercriminals, and as I always say “Never pay ransom to hackers, you are just making them strong” contact the Law Enforcement if you’re a victim of hackers, and don’t forget to read my piece on “How to protect from Ransomware”.
