New policy regarding phishing sites

Lately we discover more and more free accounts on our network that are used to host phishing websites. Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Typically, such phishing websites try to acquire the login details for popular sites like Facebook, Gmail, bank institutions etc.

This is absolutely not allowed on our servers and will result in permanent account deletion from now on. This means we no longer provide backup files to such users and never reactivate their accounts!

  • Do you have any way of detecting these types of sites or do you have to come across them or have them reported?

  • xtreemhost

    We have several abuse detector scripts running constantly on our
    network to detect phishing sites and other abuse. Of course, there are
    also phishing sites that have been reported.

    so what happened to phishing sites before? permaban is normal for phishing sites… i’m surprised that you didn’t do that before.

  • xtreemhost

    It’s normal indeed, but people blamed us for stealing their work etc.
    Now we never discuss about it, permanent ban…
