for them 10(20,30?) bucks of delayed payment is less than nothing - recommendation from happy customer - priceless )

Nice story :)
AWS knows before the hacker that your keys are compromised. They are running a similar script/program to check whether your keys are publicly exposed.

So you know that for a fact? Or are you guessing?

I've found Slack (@SlackHQ) support to be awesome too.

I have seen instances like this before where some guys would have exposed their repo publicly with the keys and immediately started receiving emails from AWS that their keys are compromised. I am guessing the fact they would have done it the same way the hackers are doing it.
