    Hey guys,

    so a couple of days ago one of my VPS' went down then I contacted the host about it and they said the node server has some major issues. After 2days my friend also contacted them (it is a big VPS and we share it) and apparently someone had a really big phising site which lead to the node server being seized!
    The server is located in the netherlands, I never thought that would actually happen, the usual case is to send an abuse report and then the host takes care of it, isn't it?

    Never happened to me, but probably depends on what level of intrusion happened on phishing site and the VPS host node. For example, if the instrusion was at VPS host node level that allowed breach of the site, then yes it is possible.

    Curious who is the web host ?
