I keep getting entries in my Apache logs (thousands of them):
184.108.40.206 - - [14/Apr/2021:21:15:38 +0200] “POST /path/save HTTP/1.1” 200 5416 “https://www.example.net/path/44440” “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/89.0.4389.90 Safari/537.36”
I found that they come from the ip address 220.127.116.11 which is Cloudflare. It’s like a DDoS attack, but since it seems to be coming from Cloudflare itself, I don’t know if there is a way to mitigate the requests.
I believe it might have started after turning on Browser Insights under the Speed section. Turning it off again didn’t fix the issue though.
How can I stop Cloudflare from doing these requests? I tried contacting Cloudflare but since I’m on the free plan I don’t know if they will ever get back to me…
