Sometimes I connect to the Internet using a VPN connection to be able to access the blocked websites. I've got a few questions regarding this:
- Are my important data (like my credentials) vulnerable to be eavesdropped on the VPN server? What if the protocol of web site I am connecting to is
HTTPS? (like gmail)
- Is the owner of VPN server able to access anything on my computer (files and folders) via this connection?
- If the answer to any of the above questions is Yes, is there any counter measures to prevent it?
Any advice would be appreciated!
