2 days ago, my network consultant changed my password to <snip> in order to fix something.
A day later, my server got disabled by DO. They email me this
“”""We are writing to let you know that your Droplet FFGCCLUB-SERVER at <snip> has been disconnected from the network after it contributed 1.5 Gbps to a 12.4 Gbps Distributed Denial of Service attack. The network traffic from your Droplet matches a pattern of malicious traffic originating from other Droplets targeted at a specific victim. We understand how disruptive this may be to your work; however, it was critical for us to disconnect your Droplet to reduce further harm.
Your path to resolution will be influenced by how you use FFGCCLUB-SERVER, your technical expertise, and/or your time available for investigation.“”“”
I have done some research. and i found a DO moderator said that “a weak password can cause DO to disable someone network” (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/why-am-i-getting-disconnected-from-network-so-frequently)
PS. I ran all my websites with Cloudflare.
