Customer support these days is down the drain let me tell you. If I'm talking to CloudFlare or my host they either ask me a question I already gave an answer to in my initial query or say something completely irrelevant to the issue or say something else that I know will not fix the issue at hand. I often find myself fixing my own issues through a hell of a lot of research and testing which can take DAYS! And try as I might, I'm very clear and concise, and explain the issue verbatim. NOPE! They hire idiots!
The last time I had this crap was when the cron wasn't sending me email. So I tried another email just to rule out the other one because of possible blacklisting crap and other email crap I don't know too much about. Despite that cron emails weren't sent. So I opened a ticket with my host explaining everything and they told me it was probably the email. I'm like, HELLO! I already told you I tried two emails with two different domains! It ain't that, yo. So that's what I message them back on how I knew it wasn't an email issue. So it looked like my ticket was escalated to someone who knew what the hell they were talking about and the next day they tell me that in fact there was an error or something preventing emails to be sent from cron. Ya think! In two days the issues was finally rectified and I was able to use the email I used for cron all along.
"Artificial Intelligence" and "Machine Learning" are such buzz-words nowadays, that they effectively don't mean anything anymore when used in articles like that. Not really sure I would comment about whether I agree or disagree, or whether the claims are BS, in regards to those points in the article, without knowing more about what they're actually trying to say (or, whether they're trying to say anything at all), and I would say to same to just about anything which mentions those things nowadays, unless the articles in question are specifically about those things.
In terms of the hard numbers though, I would agree, and it does reflect my own observations, too. It's also one of the reasons why I try to tell CIDRAM users that they need to keep their signatures as up-to-date as possible: Because the signatures are becoming more and more elaborate as time goes on, and also become more quickly outdated nowadays compared to before, as IP addresses shift more frequently now, and of course, the more fine-tuned signatures are, often also, the more frequently they need to be updated. It's also one of the reasons why I always say that CIDRAM is not a magic bullet, and won't stop everything. I think, what we do, and what we have, is still super useful, still super effectively, and blocks most things, but of course, does not and will not block everything. Using modules like the SFS Module and AbuseIPDB module is super helpful too, and TBH, I wouldn't really want to rely on just the signature files alone for any serious, high-traffic production website.
@Maikuolan Just updated and I see this error_log entry. It could have spat that out on updating and there's only one instance of this error, but never the less figured I'd let you know.
