Dear Customer,

Cyber criminals are using your network (and ours) to unlawfully attack other computers on the Internet.

The specific security problem with your DNS server at was first reported to you on Date1 (original message attached). Please be advised that we will interrupt network access to that server on Date2.
This will likely disrupt your service.

To avoid disruption, please contact me at Email with a mitigation plan no later than close of business Date3.

I stand ready to assist any way that I can.

Your Name
