What do I do when I receive an abuse report from AWS about my resources?
2 minute read
AWS notified me that my account's resources were reported for abusive activity. What does this mean, and what do I need to do?
The AWS Trust & Safety Team sends abuse reports to the security contact on your account. If there is no security contact listed, then the AWS Trust & Safety Team contacts you using the email address listed on your account.
If you require more information, reply to the email from the AWS Trust & Safety Team. The team will request additional information from the reporter.
If you receive an abuse notice from AWS, do the following:
Review the abuse notice to see what content or activity was reported. Logs that implicate abuse are included along with the abuse report, as provided by the reporter.
Reply directly to the abuse report and explain how you're preventing the abusive activity from recurring in the future. Note: If you don't respond to an abuse notice within 24 hours, AWS might block your resources or suspend your AWS account.
