    Oh wow, okay.
    The provider did suspend my VPS because of it.

    This scheme reminds me about what BitNinja doing some years ago. Won't waste my time and ended buying their product to stop terrorizing me.

    Thank you for your comment.

    The email from netcrafti is like this :

    "we SUSPECT"

    THIS NOT MEAN IS TRUE IF YOU SUSPECT ... some prviders is scarry of this.

  • So to provider suspended your service based on what you claim was a bogus abuse notification?

    It must've been something serious for the provider to suspend service instead of forwarding the notification, can you publish the abuse report so we can take a look?

  • ive received similar email , aws notified me and i replied that mentioned file does not exist on my server at all. they closed the case after my reply most probably due to mentioned url in the incident was 404

  • I always prefer to remove files, clean website and give thanks to Netcraft.

    However sometimes we need to terminate account for hosting malicious files.

    It happened before, this is the 2nd incident report, similar claim. The provider just immediately shut my VPS and ask me to check in safe mode. I wasted some hours by checking things but cannot find a thing.

    The url and file they put in report is, I would like to say, fake. I won't go into detail about my site nor settings, etc. Just want to know if any other people faces similar claim from Netcraft.

    We ignore netcraft complaints. They are the spammiest anti-spam company ever. We take "almost" all abuse complaints seriously. Not theirs.

    Wow, what on earth happened to Netcraft? They used to be good people, but seem to have gone completely off the deep end with security snakeoil and "brand protection" nonsense...

  • I marked Netcraft emails as spam, ended up receiving so many that were just nonsense I just wanted them all blocked.

    Bitninja is just trying to market their product, but Netcraft we usually receive valid complain, we always verify it before taking actions, sometimes when we get repeat complain then it's false positive, like if we terminated an abusive vps, then same IP get allocated to another user and if Netcraft even detects web server on same IP they send same complain again without checking, but we just reply them to check it again and they respond again after verifying and close the case.

    Even for bitninja we check traffic for reported IP and if it appears to be doing what bitninja is complaining we take action and if we don't find anything abusive we just ignore their complains

  • Sad to see a veteran player in the industry like Netcraft pivoting into this shady business of fake abuse notifications.

    Still, your provider is the problematic part in this equation if they suspend services without forwarding or at least verifying abuse notices.
