NodeJS / Cloudflare block GET requests if user agent starts with "Artifactory"

I’m facing an error 403 while getting files. I tried different calls at command line.

curl -A "Artifactory/7.49.10" https://node.js/dist/

results to a html error page

curl -A "uwe" https://node.js/dist/

works like expected.

What can I do?

See https://nodejs.org/dist/ Blocking JFrog Artifactory User Agent: Artifactory · Issue #5605 · nodejs/nodejs.org · GitHub for explanation/information.

Or maybe even better, from https://nodejs.org/dist/ Blocking JFrog Artifactory User Agent: Artifactory · Issue #5605 · nodejs/nodejs.org · GitHub

If you have stumbled upon this thread, please refrain from using Index of /dist/ in your Generic Remote Repository URLs, the correct URL for nodejs binaries is https://nodejs.org/ (WITHOUT /dist)

Thank you very much!
