Subject RE: [users@httpd] how do I prevent sites from hijacking my images?
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2002 04:51:39 GMT
Also put in a proxy-nocache meta tag at the top of the page, correct me if I'm wrong but that
should tell the proxy not to cache this page and its contents

Create a little javascript thing that displays the image, disable right click on that particular
web page and put a restriction on the directory that stores the images with a .htaccess file
and say that the only refferer can be the actual page the images are linked to.

The above may work
