Vulnerability Scanner

Our upstream ‘Origin Server’ hosting partner has blocked some Cloudflare IPs and claim it was as a result of a vulnerability scan. Is vulnerability scanning of origin servers automated? as we did not initiate a scan.

That’s all done by your host. You’ll have to get more specific details from them.

Thanks sdayman. Do I take it then that Cloudflare doesn’t Netscan or Portscan the origin server?

No way. Cloudflare doesn’t go poking around other people’s servers.
