[The Register] VPN logs helped unmask alleged 'net stalker, say feds

And that's where the surprise came in – at least for those who believed a VPN is a complete protection: “Significantly, PureVPN was able to determine that their service was accessed by the same customer from two originating IP addresses,” claim the Feds (allegedly, those IP addresses were at Lin's work and home addresses).
