we just recently had our FTP server "attacked" and tagged, this led to about 14Gb of stuff being uploaded and shared from our server, all before we noticed it. The problem was caused by incorrect permission inheritence on the ftproot and pub folders, since then its been fixed, i deleted the tagged folders and the uploaded warez (folders with reserved names/special characters) using the dos command "rd /x 'directory'"
now, i have the logs from all the transactions from around that time, and with that a list of IP addresses/dates/times. I know that a given ISP can trace the exact user to IP address if they have a time, what I am asking is that should we submit the offences (uploaders) to the relative ISPs or should we get in contact with an authority in regard to piracy (files included games/movies), and if so, who/where?
