DNS only records exposing IPs

Hi all! I’m getting this message:
“Some of your DNS only records are exposing IPs that are proxied through Cloudflare. Make sure to proxy all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records to avoid exposing your origin IP.”
I don’t know what to do.

If you have a DNS record set to DNS only, then CF can’t DDOS protect the server and thus you might be open to DDOS attacks on it. If your pay for managed/shared hosting then you probably don’t have to worry about this (since quality hosts have their own DDOS protection), but if you run your own server or have your own hardware then you might not be able to deal with DDOS attacks on your own.

What type of record is this error appearing next to? You should see an orange triangle next to the offending record in question:
