I got a dedicated server a few days ago. This morning I set up virtualmin and moved my personal sites on to the server. Then I got this Abuse Warning from the data center:

However, should you require help, please contact our professional service. Be advised that should we receive further reports we may be forced to step in to prevent further abuse of our networks.
For your convenience, please see attached report.
