What is the problem with Cloudflare?
Malwarebytes Antimalware (MBAM) started reporting outbound communication to IPs and sites that go through Cloudflare (CF). MBAM blocked these communications, fortunately.
I wanted to let CF know about this, like I reported to Akamai last week about a similar abuse (which promptly stopped without any response from Akamai). Since there are 3 sites and about 6 IPs being used, I figured they'd want to know. After all, they offer protection against DDoS attacks. But, when I went to fill out their abuse form, I discovered I couldn't send it.
First, it requires valid URLs. I provided the 3 sites, even adding www, but it didn't accept them - perhaps because they end in ".top". I tried the IPs instead.
CF also requires logs or other data that help pinpoint the problem, so I pasted in the MBAM protection log. It said the data should be no more than 5000 words but my log was less than that (unless CF counts differently), so it wouldn't accept the log, nor was there a way to attach the log separately.
So, in the end, I couldn't report it.


Namaste, Peace & Love,

If I have frustrated you, then I must be a student. If I've imparted information or a skill to you, then I must be a teacher. If I've helped you, then I must be a volunteer. If I've touched your life, then I must be happy!
If you had to choose between saving just your family, or saving 10,000 GOOD people (but not your family), what would you choose?
