Spambot Ips Indicates CLOUDFLARE IP [ siteurl] 11.05.2020, 08:14 89847 Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 7.0;) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile Safari/537.36 (compatible; AspiegelBot)

Into my CPANEL > under visitors, I see a lot of above given records, IP adres is owned by CLOUDFLARE.

What does it mean? Are people using CLOUDFLARE for spam bots?

Since Cloudflare acts as a reverse proxy, when it’s configured as expected, all connections to your origin webserver come from Cloudflare’s IP addresses, and that may or may not be a problem for you:

  • If your web application is using the originating IP of the visitor as part of its logic, it will now use a Cloudflare IP address
  • If you use the content of your access logs, they now contain a Cloudflare IP address as the $remote_addr

Depending on your setup, you can restore the visitor IPs in a number of ways. You can find a complete list here, or below are a few of the most popular:
