AWS WAF to block automated bot from stealing content.



I am trying to use bot control to block bot and content scrapper from stealing content on client blog. After setting up WAF i realized some bot still are still stealing content and google news not working. I am using an ALB. If i turn on Anonymous IP List, it blocks the bot but also block VPN and Proxies.

Please how can i go about it, so it doesn't block service i need and use, but block automated bot from stealing content.

Best Regards
