Why file a Cloudflare Abuse Form?
Most websites are protected by Cloudflare’s security service, even malicious and harmful ones. Filing a Cloudflare abuse report will make it aware of illegal or malicious activity on websites or domains they are currently protecting or serving. This could include spamming, phishing, distributing malware, or hosting illegal content. Filing an abuse form can help Cloudflare take action against specific websites or domains.
The information provided in the abuse form will be reviewed by Cloudflare’s abuse team and used to identify and mitigate instances of malicious activity. Depending on the severity of the abuse, Cloudflare may take actions such as blocking access to the offending website or domain, terminating the customer’s account, or referring the matter to law enforcement.
By filing an abuse form, you play an essential role in ensuring the security and stability of the internet and helping to prevent the spread of harmful activities.
