Subject [users@httpd] Side effect of blocking images
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2004 04:00:14 GMT
I don't want my images to be linked from other sites. So I added this to
my mod_rewrite settings:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.jpg$        -          [F]

Does this setting have any side effect? I mean, is there any possibility
the user's browser doesn't pass 'Referer' value? Or firewall rule that
change the Reference on browser maybe? Anyone has comment on this
setting? Please help.

Thank you,
