Challenge in WAF

Hi, everyone. What kind of challenge is it, Managed Challenge or Captcha?

Captcha

Hmm… I’m afraid not. There’s been a recent update that changed Legacy Captcha to Managed Challenge for all WAF rules.

The label in the selector only says “challenge”, but the action will be Managed Challenge.

Oh well, that’s a real shame :confused:

:joy: not quite!

Things are moving so fast, and docs not always keeping pace, so easy to get lost when it comes to WAF. BTW, what I said applies to legacy WAF only, I don’t have access to the new WAF.

I hope it doesn’t apply to the new one; while Managed Challenge can be a cool concept, I wouldn’t bet on it being accurate with all malicious actors :sweat_smile: .
Potentially legitimate visitors are also potentially malicious; this leaves the gates open to unwanted requests.
