Installed HotLinkBlocker, works great... now real quick question, perhaps I am missing something here, but in the hotblocker config, I have set up LINK security on a published content directory on our IIS server which stores tons of wav's, gif's, etc. Config below:

#################################################
# HotlinkBlocker Configuration file

# Version 1, 4, 0, 56


Signature=
LinkExpires=3600
NotifyOrder=MEDIUM


[Protect]
LINK  /members/sound%20effects http://www.domainname.com


[ReferersBlackList]
[ReferersWhiteList]
[UserAgentsBlackList]
[UserAgentsWhiteList]

 

This config prevents anyone from linking to any files contained in that folder, and if tried it redirects them to the main site index.  Works great, now...

All I did was add a second trailing "/" and the file is obtainable.

For example:  http://www.mydomain.com/members/sounds/test.wav will redirect to the site index when HB is turned on.

http://www.mydomain.com//members/sounds/test.wav is obtainable simply by adding the second trailing slash (which I found is able to be used infinatly, for example, http://www,mydomain.com/////////////members/sounds/test.wav will also allow the user to download the same exact file.

I guess my first question is, WHY is that possible?
