Greetings to everyone,
I signed up for Cloudflare to act as a buffer between one of my sites and the outside world. I had hoped that Cloudflare would be able to stop a bot that is running from Cloud South. I created a rule to block bots and left it alone. I noticed that now my site is being hit hard by a bot from Cloudflare. This bot is hitting multiple times a minute. It is relentless. It comes from multiple IPs but a whois search points the IP’s to Cloudflare.
My questions are:
Does anyone know what this bot is?
Does anyone know why this bot is hitting my site non stop?
Does anyone know how I can block this bot?
I feel like I went backwords using Cloudflare to keep the bots away. I block one bot, only to be replaced by Cloudflare’s bot. I feel like Cloudflare is a waste.
Thanks to anyone who can help. This has become very aggravating.
