Image Filtering Issue

Postby adamlau » Mon May 09, 2005 7:19 am

How to disable images on: <https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.branch=&.src=ym&.v=0&.u=9gneidl0ilm62&.last=&promo=&.intl=us&.bypass=&.partner=&pkg=&stepid=&.done=>?

The following...

https://sec.yimg.com/i/reg/*
https://sec.yimg.com/i/us/nt/ma/*
https://sec.yimg.com/i/us/pim/lgn/*

...works with Adblock, but does not seem to filter properly when set as an Ad Muncher MyFilter. How to accomplish image filtering with the above URL?

Ad Muncher can not filter https:// (encrypted) pages.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

My first popup stopper blocked too much.
My second popup stopper didn't block enough.
Ad Muncher was juuuuust right.

Yeah but it should still be able to block complete access to it. You would think. ;)

Ad Muncher can remove https:// links and image URLs from inside NON encrypted pages.

He is trying to remove images from an encrypted page.

Ad Muncher can't remove anything on that page nor stop it from loading.

Yeah I understand you can not change https source code. That is the html of the page, etc.

But why not Block retrieval of URL?

Just drop the specified https connection that goes though ad muncher? Or do https not go though ad muncher at all?

Meaning no editing of the page at all.

Everything is encrypted.

Ad Muncher passes all encrypted connections without modifying them in any way.

For that category to work the https images would have to appear in the "retrieved URLs" category.

And they don't.

Also, it would collapse the space the images occupied so for me it would be useless even if it could be done.

Hey,

"Ad Muncher passes all encrypted connections without modifying them in any way."

Ok so it does pass them all. Why not just drop them if specifed or can Ad Muncher not tell the difference well enough between http and https?

So you do not modify it at all. You just drop the connection. Like a firewall does. Yeah I understand a firewall is best, but just wondering. ;)

Or I am understanding you incorrectly. Sounds like I am?

Thanks,
Will

I don't know if this post will help, but Jeff replied to another users question regarding an encrypted https site, I think he makes it pretty clear in this thread as to what is happening:

Yea I know. I got that.

I'm just wondering why you cant just drop the connection itself. No need to edit it any way. Seeing as you can not even read it.

I just imagine you can pretty easily tell if a page is encrypted or not. And if so then drop the connection of told to. Thats all. But guess I will leave that to my firewall like always. ;)

EDIT: nevermind... :) I might just leave them, sf is nice.

That's why I get Ads on sourceforge.net sometimes!
Is there anyway to block those with a conventional firewall? I use Kerio PF 4.2 RC1 (I think...the latest RC)

but why does it work with Adblock? and not with admuncher? why can adblock remove adverts in encrypted pages but not "munchie"?

WTF?

because adblock takes the html and filters the elements out with CSS (I believe) after the html file has already been received, whereas Admuncher tunnels the connections through its filters and changes the html file before it gets to the browser. If that connection is secure, admuncher cannot filter it because it is encrypted.
