That sounds very likely to me.

If you're still struggling to identify the culprit then the logs may contain more useful information. If you'd like my help in tracking down the aide then seeing the logs would speed things up. You can send/paste them somewhere and contact me privately if that helps an if they contain private data then we might be able to sign a confidentiality agreement although that might take a bit of time to arrange.
