    As you can see these are quite frequent connections and IP appears to be Cloudflare: 173.245.53.68 - Whois | Myip.ms

    How is that possible that someone quite anonymously spamming me by this into my error_log file and from cloudflare IP?

    It looks like a bot trying to exploit known weaknesses.

    You're seeing cloudflare IP's because cloudfare can be used as a CDN or proxy.

    Congratulations, the bots have found you.

    In such a case, you may find this useful to implement.

    Doesn't really matter does it!?
