I've added a rewrite rule to our .htaccess file to deny linking access to any files of the type: exe, com, zip, bat, tar, gz. This rule was added since last month we served 14gigs of traffic and the most requested were files that didn't have UGN Security as the referrer.

We don't mind you taking our files, we also don't mind you taking our users; but we can't afford to mirror our files for you to link directly to them.

If you wish to link to these files still, your users will recieve a "cannot connect to server" error when trying to download the file. Note that if you would like to be added to our list of accepted sites, all you have to do is email us. You can also link to the PAGE that the download can be linked to on our servers.

Please also note that we haven't yet added this ban to the images, but we may. These changes happen throughout all domains and subdomains on the UGN Security webspace, with the exception of some user accounts. We don't yet have plan's to put this ban on txt, pdf, doc, c files but we reserve the right to keep that option available if nessessary.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask on this post through the bulletin board.

We used about 30gigs the prior month... Funny thing is that 10gigs is what was actually authorized that month...

That's cause your a pimp with, fly pimp moguai connections:)

What would normally be the charge on average per gig? heh, just wondering cost wise what it could do. Also time after time, it would add up to where unauthorized amounts wouldn't be..ok.

wow totally zoned out there for a few minutes, and watched part of a episode of family guy. The one where the smurfs start in about smurfette, and where stuie almost has a brother, but peter....yea. Then I sneezed, and was like wait...what the deus was I doing? :p

I don't see why external image linking shouldn't be stopped right as of now?

We're hosted for free courtosy of HostNuke but we're still responsible for keeping our site space within reason.

Well, so far I've approved all sites that I can think need to be allowed access to the files. No one else has requested yet heh... I'm thinking of putting the ban on text files soon but i'm not sure, most likely I will.

Images however will not be banned until I'm given just reason to add them to the list (if you link to my images I'll kill you)

heh, *see's alot of people baing dead*

Yea hostnuke is pretty jeet, their prices are nice, from what I've heard/seen they look tight as hell.

Yep an admin is responsible for that just as much as the users are:) Btw you do a great job as an admin bro. People would call that sucking up, but people that don't know me, don't know that I hardly compliment at all, esp on things like admin techniques. I just like to see people run a tight, shipshape orginization with stats, and that they watch numbers in general. Then go with not only their feelings, but the data on it.
