Abuse

Issue

I suspect that Birmingham Black Business Wallstreet/Birmingham Black Economic Alliance resources are being used for abusive or illegal purposes. How do I let you know?

Resolution

The Abuse team can assist you when resources are being used to engage in the following types of abusive behavior:

  • Spam: You are receiving unwanted emails from an  organization-owned IP address, or our resources are being used to spam websites or forums.
  • Port scanning: Your logs show that one or more AWS-owned IP addresses are sending packets to multiple ports on your server, and you believe this is an attempt to discover unsecured ports.
  • Denial of service attacks (DOS): Your logs show that one or more organization-owned IP addresses are being used to flood ports on your resources with packets, and you believe this is an attempt to overwhelm or crash your server or the software running on your server.
  • Intrusion attempts: Your logs show that one or more AWS-owned IP addresses are being used to attempt to log in to your resources.
  • Hosting objectionable or copyrighted content: You have evidence that organization resources are being used to host or distribute illegal content or distribute copyrighted content without the consent of the copyright holder.
  • Distributing malware: You have evidence that AWS resources are being used to distribute software that was knowingly created to compromise or cause harm to computers or machines on which it is installed.
