    my server is currently behind cloudflare but the attacker still manages to get my IP address through embedding images from his own server and checking his logs. Now, I've been thinking about getting a CDN to stop this. Is there a way to make *all* images go through the CDN? That means uploades, embedded files and so on.

    It's worth noting that you can generally get the IP from an email sent by the forum as well.

    Embedding an image from his server won't get the server IP unless you're using the image proxy, in which case the only hope would really be to have a different server be the proxy (which isn't really an out of the box setup). A CDN won't help.
