Requests for "cdn-cgi"

I noticed that there were recently 50 requests for the following URI path:


Can someone please tell me what this refers to? For the moment I have blocked it with a firewall rule.

Thank you.

You probably can’t block that. That route is enabled when either bot management (the enterprise feature) or bot fight mode is enabled.

Thanks… so there is no harm if someone tries to get to that address on my website?

No, that route is purely handled by Cloudflare and CF won’t even proxy requests to your origin if they begin with /cdn-cgi, so there’s no harm or risk of people accessing it. There are a few other pages that are served via that uri prefix - eg. try going to /cdn-cgi/trace on your domain.
