VyprVPN has mostly been blocked though apparently a few of their servers still work. Their blog post about it is unfortunately short on information:

I wonder what the endgame is for the Great Firewall. The tech-savvy are only fine with it because of how easy it is to punch through with a small amount of technical knowledge, but those holes are being closed. Two years ago I could use an SSH tunnel through my home computer. Last year that was blocked but VPN worked reasonably well, as long as I bounced around to different servers. This year I'm going to have to try something else. If China makes it practically impossible to use the outside internet securely, how will foreign businesses react? What about local nerds? What about the average people that just want to access foreign websites like Youtube, and previously used a simple browser add-on passed around from friend to friend?
