Yes. That’s what the digitalocean guys say. There was a SYN attack from my droplet. I wonder how and why. I didn’t share my SSH password to anybody and I use it from my pvt pc and not any public space. I hope digitalocean guys need to ensure about such attacks. It would be very difficult going ahead with such scenarios. This was my test server, following which I had plans to expand to at least a 50 droplets and TBs volume space. I guess I need to find a more robust and secure cloud provider.

are your ssh keys loaded into your ssh-agent?
