Digital Ocean = Digital Wild West?
I am seriously annoyed by the fact that it does not seem possible to get information about users of DigitalOcean VMs. For a while now we receive HTPP requests with spoofed user client strings causing 500 errors on our websites. Obviously someone is having fun scanning websites in a rather stupid way and not identifying as a robot. I wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org twice, sent them the log files and asked for the user’s contact – no answer. It now comes down to us blocking all DigitalOcean IPs from our webservers and I’m close to report these IPs to any black-list I can find, no matter if they’re dynamic or not. As much as I appreciate the smart concept of DigitalOcean VMs, there must be a way to avoid problems like this.
