  • Claim the presence of the files put the host at risk for a DDoS attack.

  • “Before I delete the ‘evidence,’ could you tell me what the exact violation is?"wrote McCoy

  • He had malware or an exploit on the site, not HTML and Javascript files.

    • But no update

  • It's incredibly disappointing to see more service providers cutting off customers simply

    • Because they decide (or fear) that content is too volatile or unpopular to host

    • They can cut off anyone for anything
