I misconfigured iptables on a nginx forward proxy and inadvertently created a open http proxy available to the internet for about 3-4 hours, once I realized what I had done I immediately stopped the process and fixed iptables. I recreated my VPS as a security precaution (also wiping out the proxy logs… stupid mistake I know…) Just curious if I should be extremely worried about anything legally even though it was only available for a short amount of time
