Deactivation of some customer CSP subscriptions

Microsoft has observed a recent increase in spamming activity among some customers using Azure subscriptions obtained via their CSP partners. This activity is outside of what is permitted under the terms of use for Microsoft Azure services.

Examples of these violations of Microsoft’s acceptable use policy can include:

  • Spamming
  • Hacking
  • Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks
  • Cryptocurrency mining
  • Malware distribution
  • Resale of pirated subscriptions

In cases where Microsoft observes this type of activity, they may take action to deactivate customer subscriptions without prior notice.

Further information on Microsoft’s enforcement of its acceptable use policy is here.

If you have questions, please have them contact Azure support.
