Cloudflare challenge favicon.ico


#1

hi
i had created firewall rule to challenge any unsecured connections to my site (http://)
when i am trying to access my site in non secure connection , i found my ip challenged 3 times
one record for http and two records for favicon.ico , although i no favicon.ico in my site.


#2

Why would you challenge HTTP connections?

It does not matter if you have a favicon or not, if such a request comes in it will be challenged according to your configuration.


#3

my site is local business with ssl , http requests is almost unwanted or repeated attacks to specific folder on my site like downloader or update folders.
i was asking why this specific file challenged and have two new records every time .


#4

That file is challenged because you set it to be challenged.


#5

maybe.
