How do I protect my site from malware with CloudFlare?

CloudFlare offers several options that can help you protect your site from being hacked or infected with malware. They are:

1. CloudFlare’s Basic Security Level is based on IP reputations and will challenge IPs that have shown problematic activity online recently. The Basic Security Level is a free feature offered to all customers, but it is not as robust as using the Web Application Firewall at stopping sophisticated attackers (the Basic Security Level only throws up a challenge/captcha page, which is largely only going to help with automated hacking attempts).

2. CloudFlare’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) will stop many hack attempts on your site. The Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a paid feature on CloudFlare, and site owners can adjust the WAF security level settings and rule sets in the WAF management console.

3. Stop The Hacker is an optional app that can scan your site for vulnerabilities and assist in the removal of malware. Stop The Hacker offers different pricing plans that will do different things for your site.
