I see bot activity that is not blocked, how can I get support?

I see bot activity reaching my web server that seems to be a dictionary attack. I’m getting 3-4 registration POST requests with user agent ‘python/request’ (or something similar). I blocked the IP and it stopped for 10 hours but then started again.

You can add a Firewall Rule for POST requests from that User Agent.

I could, but that would be easy for an attacker to just send fake user agent, my question is why isn’t CF detecting the attack.

Based on what should Cloudflare classify this as an attack?

I don’t know how CF is detecting and blocking bots. I’m assuming they have experts for that.

It is not that easy I am afraid. There are cases where you have to intervene manually, such as here.
