Is this in the files you downloaded? It might be the connection string to our database in AWS. And a developer might have accidentally comitted the connection string to the Formspider Git repository. Uuuppps... Thank you for letting us know.

Kind Regards,
Yalim

Just to be clear. I don't think there is an actual connection happening. I think our AWS database's connection string has somehow found its way to our Formspider Git repository.

I am taking this page offline. Our AWS database's connection credentials might be in the Formspider download file and having this info public might cause harm to our AWS database. We will attend the issue immediately.

Eduardo, I edited the content of the question instead of taking it down. I will update this thread for you after we figure out what happened.

Again, thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Yalim,

I not andestand well to you. The connection was made from server ec2-34-234-89-0.compute-1.amazonaws.com to our database using formspider user. I saw one connection in my database.

???? What??? Sorry, I completely misunderstood the issue. I think I understand it now.

In this case, this has nothing to do with us.

Could it be that your organization has an AWS account and someone tried to connect to your local database from the AWS computer?

Kind Regards,
Yalim
