    Hey Everyone,

    Kind of a noobish question, so go easy on me.
    But what kind of privacy can one expect from the average VPS ?

    Here's my concern running some Blackhat Tools:
    Although you're sharing the VPS's IP address with other people, isn't everything you run on your VPS machine logged? Therefore, traceable back to you?
    Even from a non-IP point of view, isn't it completely out in the open what you're running on your VPS, for the admin to see?

    So that defeats the purpose of running tools on a VPS?

    Any ways around this???

    Thanks so much!

    It really depends on what you are trying to do.

    Even on a VPS, you will still need proxies for a lot of tools.

    The purpose of using a VPS is so that you can run tools 24/7.

    How BH are you going?

    Sure, but the idea of you doing something that got enough attention (illegal) enough for someone to put fourth all the effort to geolocate your IP down to your home, seems far-fetched.
