The last few days I’ve been getting visits from some bot that seems to be trying to pass itself off as a CloudflareDiagnostics bot, but it doesn’t seem like a real Cloudflare bot. Can anyone else confirm or deny if it is?

Like I said, it seems to be someone trying to fake a Cloudflare bot, but I can’t completely discount the possibility of it being a Cloudflare bot that they have running on a 3rd party network. Especially since it keeps coming back at about the same time each day, multiple days in a row. Although the bot is not marked as a known bot via cf.client.bot, so I just further assume it’s a fake.
