claudebot attacks - server overloaded

Hi,

We have noticed high server usage on one of our servers. After investigation, we found that one of the hosted websites was attacked from "claudebot". Does anyone know what is claudebot? And why it is targeting one website?

Also, how can be block claudebot to access our server? Can we block it using anyway?

Thanks,
Chris

The best way to block bad bots is, use CloudFlare and create a rule to block bad bots including Claudebot.

You can also block the bots using .htaccess rule. For more information, you can refer the following URL:
