Hello sir, i am experiencing huge CPU & RAM loads than unusual, so i started digging into why this is happening later i came to know few IPS from Bangladesh and other countries sending frequent requests.
my website is more into calculations i believe the scrapers developed a script to convert output data into API
so i finally reached Cloudflare to build good rules to stop scraping and bot traffic, i have enabled bot fight mode
after some time Cloudflare starting making notes of unusual traffic and started to sho JS challenge
as i can see IP is a AWS's IP and i do not have any connection with them so i blocked that ip.
i have visited the direct ip site to check who is behind this IP took me to the scraping site website
now the same person is trying using different IPS
i am currently using free cloudflare plan, please suggest me something to avoid bots and scpers
