Droplets got infected by Bot-Net Malware
I purchased three droplets yesterday, one with a strong password, two with a very weak password (1 in SGP, 1 in BLR). When I check my email this morning, DO Is warning me about two of my droplets with weak password were being used for a DDOS attack (Consumes 3.84TB of Bandwidth before DO cut the network of my droplets). My first assumption was my droplets are infected by malware. I wondered did a person just ssh into my machine and download some malware? And how should i recover my data from it?
