Not Supported  

Disclaimer

This is idea belongs to Blizzard Entertainment and its community of World Of Warcraft. I just found it useful for vb so I create this for my site and I think you may need it too. Credits go to Blizzard.

Usage

Recently the acts of keylogger scams and PC security have been increasing. No one wants to lose your credit card numbers, your game accounts, chat logs with your gf or have your PC hacked. Keyloggers and trojan can be installed by just pressing a link. I'm a gamer and I have a board, I don't want me or my friends to get a trojan/keylogger by pressing strange links from the posts on my board. So I found the idea of the world of warcraft community is really nice and vbulletin boards would need one (I actually just saw it this morning).

How does it work ?

The hack will check for any urls that are intentionally/automatically put on [url] bbcode if it is from your website or a remote one. The urls works normally if they are not remote, otherwise a message will display confirming if you want to open it with some advices (those can be edited via RLI_error_message template).

This product use:

one new file.
one new template.
one file edit.
one template edit.
0 query.

To install, follow the steps in instructions.txt.

Demo

http://www.holvn.org/forum/showpost.html?p=89717&postcount=7064

There are 2 links in that post, one is remote.

Compatible
This products work good on both version 3.5 and 3.6 of vB

Any ideas are welcome.

and spare me for my bad English T_T.

that may be added in the future, I was thinking that too to give your allowed sites. Wouldn't be much of a problem.

That would be great then.
So just to make it clear for me, if I use this hack, will it prompt this download for example. This is DownloadsII add-on. I think the links of the downloads are internal.. then it forwards to outside somehow

I'm sorry but I can't read your language but I assume if the link redirect after it is pressed, there will be no problem at all.

@soulface: I coded this on my localhost, then installed in on my live board as a test for the installation and there were no errors. Can you check the instructions again ? I'd like to test it out on your board, just make a post with remote and none-remote links.

It adds a warning before going outside of your domain to an external link. This prevents the possibility of being duped into a phishing site.
