We are in the process of installing a Galaxy instance to Amazon EC2 and this 
morning I received an email from ec2-ab...@amazon.com saying that our EC2 
instance has been flooding with data in what looks like a DOS 
attack. A whois shows that the IP belongs to Incapsula, which appears to be a 
load balancing proxy server.  Does anyone here recognize the IP or use 
Incapsula?  My first thought is that something in Galaxy might be trying to 
"phone home".

The Galaxy instance we are using is based on the galaxy-stable:16.04 Docker 
image from Björn with a few of our tools installed for testing. I've locked 
down access to the instance until I figure out what happened and I wanted to 
check in here first to see if I’ve been DOS’ing the Galaxy infrastructure or if 
anyone recognizes the IP address.
