Post by: adslmax on March 27, 2020, 07:11:16 PM
I am getting annoying some sites start to ask me to complete the security check? How to stop this madness as it never happen to me for years and years, why it appears more now?

Have you checked the DNS server is set correctly on your PC and router?  Because that seems highly suspect to me as I've never seen a captcha on TBB.

How often are you accessing the sites Max, as I suspect some will do this if they suspect some sort of flooding attack.  This is just a guess though.

I'm not sure why its showing you the capita screens, but those are definately from cloudflare.

Are you using a vpn or the tor browser? What dns server are you using?

It generally throws the capita screen up when it can't tell where you're coming from.

Have you tried accessing the site from a different browser? If so, did it do the same thing?

Reading that PN thread about ip addresses made me think of the irc days when sometimes if I was allocated certain ip addresses I'd get warnings when connecting to the server.

I remember it would suggest a website address were you could put the ip address in and it would tell me if it was any Internet ban list. It checked about 20+ lists and if it was then some of them you could apply for it to be removed. Some were spam lists. So its possible if the ip address is on the list then thats why cloudflare keeps throwing up this security check.

If you're on a dynamic ip address then turn your connection off and wait for a while, hopefully when you re-connect you'll get a new ip address.

If you're on a static ip address then you'll have to look up the spam check sites, though I've forgot the name of the site the irc server used to recommend. Hmm, you could try this site https://www.dnsbl.info (https://www.dnsbl.info) Btw, its normal to be blocked/banned from a couple of the servers it checks.
