How does your Abuse system work?

We use an automated abuse response system based on AbuseIO. Our abuse system will parse incoming abuse reports, look up details of the user of that IP address/website and create a ticket which needs to be resolved in a timely manner.

When an abuse report is received, the IP owner will get a message stating this with an URL which leads to our abuse system (view screenshot below).

This system will present the information (evidence) of the abuse and will allow our customers to respond to the reporter. (View the screenshot below to see the response fields).

What happens when you do not respond within 24 hours?

Effective immediately we will enforce replies to abuse reports. Failure to do so within the specified timeframe will lead to automatic suspension of your server(s). While we have done everything to ensure our emails are delivered we would advise you to add notifications@abuse.bz to your address book and/or whitelist to ensure these messages are not regarded as spam.
