Captcha challenge blocking crawler bots?

Hi,

My site is being ddos, and I just implemented a firewall rule :

(not http.user_agent contains “kokoko”)

In my case if user agent doesn’t contain “kokoko”, it displays a captcha.

My question is, would this rule block the crawler/indexing bots like Google bots?

Thanks

Bump…

Only if they aren’t using the user agent kokoko. If you wanted to allow Good Bots when they would otherwise be blocked by a firewall rule you need to have a rule set up to do just that.
