Unblock my static IP

Seems that some days ago our static IP was compromised and was added to 3 blacklists (barracuda, spamhaus and all.s5h.net). Issue was fixed and IP has been removed from all blacklists about 1 day ago. But we still can see Cloudflare captcha when visit protected (by CF) sites.
Anybody know how long IP address can be present in Cloudflare blacklist database?

You did the necessary steps. Once it has been confirmed that your network is clear, IP reputation will naturally improve. You can use ‘Privacy Pass’ which is available for Firefox and Google Chrome to avoid further challenges. And wait a bit

If for any reason the IP reputation score increases again, the likelihood is that you still have something which is infected on your infrastructure.

Often this is caused by:

  • Computer/IoT device infected with malware or some kind of virus.
  • Scripts or bots (e.g., scrapers) carrying out automated tasks across sites.

This Community Tip has other suggestions to review. Our IP reputation is sourced from multiple places including Project Honey Pot.
