Too many random requestes from China

have anyone experienced something like that before ??

since last year some bots from china they do nothing but keeps searching on random things in my website , i have blocked them since last year and till now they still do that, i ahve blocked it since that time and every day i get 50k - 70k blocked request from this network i indeed blocking whole country
this is one of the asns
AS4134 - CHINANET-BACKBONE No.31,Jin-rong Street

I get a lot of requests for paths like //blog/wp-includes/wlwmanifest.xml. These requests are from bots trying to identify WordPress sites, exploit known vulnerabilities, and take over the site so it can be used for various nefarious purposes. These originate mostly from cloud providers in the US, but I have no reason to think there aren’t bots from China doing the same.

Could you give some examples of URLs you’re seeing?

it’s literally searching website.com/?s=some Chinese words

Are you sure the requests are coming from bots? Because, you know, there are quite a lot of people in China :slightly_smiling_face: Could you send a screenshot of one of the blocked requests in the firewall tab?
