Question

How to effectively combat proxy attacks

https://vooboutique.com/ is using some method to load to our site https://medicalmonks.com/

We tried the solutions documented at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47237633/nginx-restrict-domains

but somehow they weren’t effective. We’re currently using .js to redirect back to us, but it seems like there should be a better solution.

We contacted godaddy, cloudflare, and the company hosting the malicious domain, but amazingly nobody wants to take action.

The ticket we submitted to DO went completely unanswered.

Does anyone have experience with these sorts or proxy attacks? Any insights would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I have just checked this and it looks like that the site is no longer loading your content but instead is being redirected to your website directly. Meaning that the solution that you’ve implemented from the link that you’ve shared seems to have worked as expected.

Let me know if you have any other questions. Regards, Bobby
