Working to block traffic from a certain country. A couple of years ago I put a managed challenge on said country. With increased unwanted traffic, I ended up blocking the country via a Firewall rule a few weeks back. Unfortunately I continue to see traffic from the country. I just remembered that I had set up a managed challenge for the country a few months back. I looked but couldn’t find any instances where the country is being challenged; though it’s possible I missed it.
Question: before I remove the challenge, I’m curious if having the country challenged is bypassing the Firewall rule blocking it?
As an FYI - I’ve tracked 100s of IP addresses all showing the country as the location for each IP so pretty confident traffic is indeed coming from the country.
