I recently set up a new VPN on a Hetzner VPS (using Wireguard). It works fine, but I notice that when I do a traceroute from home to the server, I see several Chinese intermediaries.
I'm not too thrilled with any of my traffic touching Chinese servers, but I'm wondering, assuming my VPN server has a basic but functional configuration, what risk am I actually running with my traffic going through these Chinese servers?
Is it possible/likely/probable/etc that my traffic can be decrypted en route? Are there any even minor security risks (specifically in regards to the Chinese routing) that I should keep in mind?
