Recently I’ve received an email from Digital Ocean(DO) that someone claimed a hack attack from our IP. The day before, we received a Brute force attack abuse from DO that our IP/Server has attacked another server.
I have scanned the server for any suspicious malware/virus, also I did a security upgrade at our wordpress sites, but I have not found anything suspicious yet. I haven’t either been able to find any suspicious outgoing traffic from our server, so it’s quiet strange.
I am curious what your steps are to find the cause of an bruteforce attack/hack attack? There is nothing alarming in our logs as far as I can see :/
