    Got an idea?

    Hello,
    Some known myspace user leeches an image, flash files and videos through my proxy Faceblock (an example background image: http://www.faceblock.org/browse.php?...y5qcGc%3D&b=13 through my proxy). What can I do to blacklist these links or something?

    Or how can I prevent more like this?

    Do you have hotlinking protection enabled in Glype admin ? If not, then give that a try.

    Prevent Hotlinking - This option prevents users directly hotlinking to a proxified page and forces all users to first visit the index page.

    This is pretty common on myspace, what happens I think is that they upload an image to a image hosting site, but the proxy script converts the url to the image to point threw the script, so they just copy that and put into their page, or they copy the image link from another site, thats view threw the proxy.

    Since their session is started in the proxy script, which bypasses the hotlinking protection, or the image is likely to be cached in their browser, So they wont notice.
    Not much you can about it, the people who do that are uneducated how the URLs works.
