    Hello Everyone:

    Over time, I've built up quite a long list of IP addresses that CloudFlare is happily blocking for me. Some are penetration bots, others scanning for weaknesses, and others just trying to login to dormant & fraudulent user accounts.

    One of the other things we've collectively learned to do as a community is to block the commonly known URL pattern for registration, as shown in step 6 of the URL below.

    I'm wondering, has anyone done this same thing with ctl=Login, and do you see any issues with that (assuming you have a custom login page)?

      Hello Will,

      Yes, I have a custom login page but I use URLRewrite in IIS to block requests to ctl=login. Works fine for me.
