Hi Dannon, No, I never did figure out what happened. I couldn't find anything in our log files and Incapsula wasn't very helpful. Since it was just a testing/development instance I simply took it down and spun up a new instance with better security/passwords as I did have two Tomcat instances also running with relatively weak passwords. There hasn't been any problem since.
