I inherited an app with an AWS backend. I hadn't had time to update and make sure best practices were being used on the AWS backend before it was compromised.
Each server is listed as having had DDOS attacks coming from the web (port 80).
PREFERABLY I'd just spin up a new instance of the servers and that would be that, but apparently no instance lifecycle was setup by the previous developers.
Is there some limited timeframe that Amazon has a past instance, or am I/my client completely screwed?
Otherwise I'll likely have to manually clean the server (or literally create the exact or a similar configuration), and obviously that's either is far from ideal.
To clarify, the servers in question were compromised and used to send high volumes of traffic. Amazon determined that they were implicated in a DDOS attack and blocked them from the internet.
EDIT 2: I feel a downvote is unfair - how am I supposed to know without asking?
