IP showing as blacklisted?

I am receiving a warning from Wordfence that the IP assigned by Cloudflare is blacklisted by Spamhaus Exploits Block List (XBL). This is what they are showing:

    • Your site IP address is blacklisted by a spam filtering service

Type: Spam

  • Issue Found May 24, 2019 7:03 am


    • Details: Your IP address appears on the Spamhaus Exploits Block List (XBL) which is a realtime database of IP addresses of hijacked PCs infected by illegal 3rd party exploits. You can find out more by visiting the URL: http://www.spamhaus.org/xbl/

Can someone advise how to address this??

Thanks . Jay

The Spamhaus lists are used by mail services to filter incoming mail.

As you are not using Cloudflare for SMTP traffic, the warning is not relevant, and you can safely ignore it.

Thanks for the clarification.
