Annoying Bots from Amazon Hosting!


#1

Hi, I am getting lots of bots from Amazon Hosting hitting my sites.

Here are some example UAs

ec-54-82-196-209.compute-1.amazonaws.com
ec2-54-82-207-161.compute-1.amazonaws.com
ec2-54-84-213-92.compute-1.amazonaws.com
ec2-54-89-58-186.compute-1.amazonaws.com

My server guy tried blocking them on the server but couldn’t get it work and he thinks it because of Cloud Flare.

Is there any way I can block the bots using UA in CF?

Thanks

Your Cloudflare Firewall settings page has a User Agent Blocking feature:

Thanks, I saw that but there are lots of bots with slightly different US strings. its is possible to block all from “amazonaws.com” somewhow?
