Web host SiteGround has suspended the accounts of at least two WikiLeaks mirror sites

  • SiteGroundand its upstream provider , SoftLayer

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

  • Violate the company’s Acceptable Use Policy and ToS.
  • One user, Mark McCoy, posted on his blog the entire e-mail thread between him, SiteGround and SoftLayer.

In letter, initially informed McCoy:

  • "some illegal activity" had been performed through his site.
  • "severely" violated SiteGround’s Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy.
    • Be hacked 〈FTP〉
    • McCoy got log about his account.

SiteGround said in the letter that when "illegal activity" is detected

  • The company had to "take immediate actions to stop that activity," or risk having the entire server "unplugged."
    • 要求刪除文件或停止使用服務

“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

WikiLeakslost its Web and DNS services shortly after it began posting the leaked cables.

  • Since then, it has moved to non-U.S.-based providers and relies on more than 1,000 mirror sites to stay online.
