Dns hacks by my isp

Hi, I download mullvad and was on the privacyguides with no vpn or dns over https on

I live in the 9 eys

Have I been hacked, my isp

in Permanent Record (Edward Snowden book) He talks about that the isp has black box and when you search for vpn/proxy virus gets download to your system

Have I been hacked?

Or have i just misundestod it

It would be very unlikely that your ISP would have intercepted your download of Mullvad and replaced it with a virus, unless, you are being targeted by a government. If you aren’t being targeted then, you should be fine.

The 9 Eyes is also just a information sharing agreement between different countries -

‘The Nine Eyes is a different arrangement that consists of the same members of Five Eyes working with Denmark, France, the Netherlands and Norway.’

‘The Five Eyes (FVEY) is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These countries are parties to the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence. Informally, Five Eyes can also refer to the group of intelligence agencies by these countries.’


as an extra safety measure, check if the download page also lists a checksum for the file which you can then use to verify it’s integrity
