    What is CloudFront and how to get rid of it?

    CloudFront is blocking access to sites and online forms on my Ubuntu 20.04 computer. It appears to be some type of virus, which totally surprised me as I wasn't expecting Linux to be susceptible to these. Does anyone have experience and knows how to get rid of it? The online form I need to have access to is very important and urgent. Thanks in advance!

    Edit: I use the latest Firefox browser with UBlock Origin and Privacy Badger. Changing my vpn server location did not have an effect.

    I have no clue about cloudfront (https://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/), but when you try to get your form, check that badger is not blocking access to it first. (maybe disable it for this site)
    Also install History eraser addon; or better bleachbit (as root, carefully select options)

    Is your system in Amazon AWS?

    Cloutfromt is a huge content delivery service hosting many web sites.
    Could it be that you are exiting from a VPN which CloudFlare has decided is malicious and is protecting its services from you?
    Have you tried connecting directly rather than going through a VPN?
    Could you give more detail about the blocking message?
