New anti-hacking security during sign on

Because of an increased number of hack attempts on WetCanvas.com a new security measure has been put in place during sign on. This involves getting a CloudFlare challenge page to help determine and question if a user is a real human or a bot that is trying to access the pages of Wetcanvas.com.

This means that the challenge page will present itself when CloudFlare is unable to determine if the user is actually human, the activity of the user is suspect, or both. Once the human verifies that they are a real person via the challenge page, it is less likely they will to get the challenge page unless that user continues to do more suspicious activity.



Because CloudFlare is new to Wetcanvas.com and our site has had itís fair share of hack attempts (failed and successful), CloudFlare is initially acting defensively to the traffic that it canít quite identify yet. Once much of this traffic is identified as humans and bots, in time, human traffic will see the challenge page less & the bot traffic will see the challenge page more.

If you see this challenge page during sign on, please fill it out and you will be able to access WetCanvas.com per usual. We thank you in advance for your patience. If you have further questions, please let us know. All best,

Courtney Jordan
