I was charged over $1696.00 in AWS Usage fees for putting my production AWS keys on GitHub. So think twice before you put any production keys out there, for the whole world to see. UPDATE: As spydertennis mentioned, I also had 15 Double XL EC2 instances running in multiple regions.

Do you have any idea what they were doing? mining coins?!
