Last night I received an AWS email because of the alarm I had created if my bill exceeds 50$. My month has just started and when I checked the console I saw that 600GB of data was downloaded, as my server was compromised by some vulnerability.
Although I don't have many sites running and I restored from backups, I am more concerned about the money.
I just created a Billing Alarm to check, but it saved me. I was thinking if I didn't know that then, my bill would have been 1000's of dollars.
I want to know if there is any way or steps so that even if my server gets hacked or whatever that my bill does not get high.
I have now created heavy CPU utilization and Max network OUT alarms but is there any other way?
