How? It doesnt allow me to do anything unless i press Confirm but i actually afraid of it. Do i really need to confirm "HACKED" and would it be really possible to revert it so?

UPD: done. On my own risk, but thanks a lot for reply!

It's free and you dont need to pay extra, happened to me twice because of VPS users that tried to DDoS with it.

I have a couple of questions about that boot mode.

1) What will happen if i press Confirm in my dashboard?

2) Can i restore my machine to normal working under installed OS without backups, reinstallations and etc? Actually all the things happened with my server done by me and it was a security test, thats so.

The tool i had to run is written by me and caused too many connection requests to differrent IP addresses and i know that is the problem (as i have read about causes of antihack mode turning-on in other posts about it on this forum).

If there is a requirement to pay any fines for my actions, i am ready to do so instead of losing my data, time and damaging my service...

So if its possible to restore my machine back, i will be really appreciative if someone from tech support had to read this post help me out. Here is my nic-handle: kv8307-sys and here is my machine IP address:

3) Why do i see only one of two partitions of my disk in ftp folder? If i still need to reinstall my OS, i need to back up all the data from a second partition too...
I also cannot find some files actually used by processes run on my server (such as MSSQL database files and etc).

Thanks in advance!
