I Am Suspended for a Botnet Attack. What’s That?

A botnet attack is an attempt to breach the security of multiple computers to gain control. If the attack is successful, all infected machines are connected to one network that can be controlled by the hacker remotely to perform malicious activities on a high scale.

If your server was attacked by the botnet, we suggest reinstalling it and setting up a stronger password via the Terminal.
