Cloulflare Account Hacked


My cloudflare account got hacked and the site was redirecting to porn site. Want to know how this can happen that the A record got updated on its own without anyne changing from our side.

Need a quick detail on the same.


Check your audit log to see who made the changes.

If it was using your login, your email/password were leaked from elsewhere, guessed or otherwise discovered.

Ensure to fully resecure your account:

  • change the password
  • set up 2FA
  • change your global API key and any tokens; look for newly created tokens

I am not able to setuo 2FA, as it ask to verify email & I am not recieving any mail for the same.

I have submitted an escalation request to see if your email may have found itself on the suppression list. That can happen sometimes if emails were bouncing.

someone may know your password

Your email address bounced at some point, and ended up in a suppression list on our side.

Please make sure you allow all emails from [email protected] to prevent any issue.

I’ve now cleared your email address from this list, you will now receive the emails as expected.
