That's not much of a log. If they are only sending you that and telling you to take a hike - I would find another VPS host.

We will need more information like:

  • What is the primary purpose of the VPS?
  • What OS does the VPS use?
  • Perhaps your VPS was hacked?
  • Have you checked user logs and user accounts?
  • What do any of the logs say? Look for abnormal entries.

Agreed. Also, the message they are sending you sounds pretty unprofessional, and not just because it's in broken English. – Sirex Nov 11 '12 at 22:36
