There’s no good way dealing with hackers, If I were you I prefer to pay because he only ask for tiny money $100 not like ransomware hacker who usually ask for $10000.

By the way I saw recently this database leak like you said on pastebin https://pastebin.com/bSXdQZF2. Is this yours?

Always monitor your log access with tail -f, becareful because they can login to your server and destroy your important data.

I hope that helps

I don’t know why Digitalocena don’t help with this hacking email from today I give you time 24hours from now to pay, if not I will publicity the database and make your server goes offline.
