How Do I Know if my Droplet has Been Compromised?

Posted December 14, 2015 3.8k views

I’m new to using VPS so any help would be appreciated.

I have a droplet IP that keeps getting flagged for abuse, but all I use Digital Ocean for is to host websites and I am the only person (from our company) that has access to the droplet.

Anyone have any experience with this. or can recommend what steps I should take to prevent this?

You would need to identify specific signs that you are compromised, such as traffic you do not recognize being sent from your droplet.
