Question

How serious does digital ocean take abuse reports?

I get a ton of ssh attacks, port scans, voip attacks, etc, from other Digital Ocean IPs. Some even originate from the same /24s that I am on. Is it worth trying to report them?

I have sent you dozens of reports from you and it has been 100% useless. I receive daily several spam messages from Digitalocean IPs.

Their spam contains the link UNSUBSCRIBED but clicking it causes more spam mail. Filtering is almost impossible due to several IP addresses.

Also today I received three spam Norwegian, that is language what I don’t understand… In addition, two spam in Finnish.

It also amazes you that you are a sponsor of abuseipdb.com I have been reported there hundreds of spam emails.

I have service through mxguarddog.com but their trap does not filter all of them…

I can’t send them a header of spam because my server prevents spamming.

Should I have an email account on your server so I can send a spam email header to mxguearddog.com? Because you allow sending of spam…

The thing is that DigitalOcean don’t care at all about spam etc. I’m really annoyed…

Edit: Now I have send 6 pieces of spams headers trough following link https://www.digitalocean.com/company/contact/#abuse
