Can someone explain to me I still can see Russian IP addresses hitting my Wordfence firewall even I have blocked Russia in Cloudflare?
There’s a chance they’re bypassing Cloudflare and hitting your server directly. That’s why it’s necessary to firewall off anything that doesn’t come through:
On the other hand, you may have some sort of whitelist that’s letting those connections through…or Wordfence is using a different geo database than Cloudflare. Without knowing the IP address(es) getting through, we can only guess.
Thanks sdayman. Fortunately Russia is also blocked on the Wordfence side. The IP is 18.104.22.168.
I believe Cloudflare uses MaxMind, and MM says it’s in Russia. I won’t be able to replicate the problem since I can’t trigger a request from that IP address.
