Hoping someone can enlighten me.
Every day my website is scraped by the same IP address with ASNUM 396986 - and IP address in the subnet 22.214.171.124. They appear to be a bot trying to scrape my content.
I’ve tried adding a custom rule to block the ASNUM, and I’ve added a source IP address of 126.96.36.199/24 to custom rules. I’ve tried adding the same to the IP Access rules. None of it works - the address still gets through to my site.
Other custom rules get blocked by ASNUM and/or IP Access rules (I use fail2ban to protect wp-login.php and xmlrpc.php).
Can anyone shed any light on what I’m doing wrong, or does CF have a global accept policy for Bytedance (i.e. TikTok).
