Deactivation of some customer CSP subscriptions

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.
