Email from <firstname.lastname@example.org> Action Required - Botnet on my droplet
Hello, I got this email on Tuesday saying my droplet was a Command & Control server part of a botnet (Ticket #04944796). After taking a snapshot of the droplet in question, it was shut down. But my team and I have many questions:
- what could have triggered this email?
- we did a maldet scan before the droplet was shut down and there was no evidence of malware. Is it possible this is a false alarm?
- is there a log kept that could show the malicious traffic or give us an idea of when the droplet became infected?
Thank you for your help.
