Terracotta: The Chinese VPN that hides Beijing's hackers with pwned biz

.. what a lovely list of arguments to declare those pesky VPNs suspect.

Moreover, hacking businesses offers APT scum the cover of a non-blacklisted exit node through which to target organisations: A hacking team stands a better chance at maintaining covert reconnaissance of a target when the packets trace back to a benign company.

The argument to make them even questionable for legitimate businesses.

I'm not saying this is isn't a legit report (and I'm glad they found this), I'm just hinting at the possibility that this may be used in a different way to what you expect.
