XMLRPC - DOS - on site (logs included)

Why would they be doing this? - I should have blocked initially. CPU hit, causing site degradation. What makes it more interesting is that it’s an Android phone?

Log x 100’s - 10-12 POSTS per/min - for 30+ minutes

Who? Cloudflare? Thats not them, you most likely are not rewriting IP addresses, hence the proxy addresses show up in your log.
