Re: Why am I being redirected here error?

I'm kind of tempted to install a firewall just to turn it off now

Re: Why am I being redirected here error?

ok, take this from a newbie, but the following should work in XOOPS 2.23:

in class/xoopsecurity.php,
in the function checkreferrer,
add the words:

return true; // disable referrer checking

as the *very* first line of the function.

That's it, as soon as execution enters the function, it exits with a true value.

If anyone thinks this is too dangerous, please let me know (hopefully please also suggest a better one).

Thanks (and if this was dumb, please don't laugh too hard - I did say I was a newbie).

Me too. REALLY strange.

I have nothing, literally nothing in the way of security or firewall installed. I even turned off XP's firewall.

Anyone know anything?


well, i thought the same. nothing seems to work unless i checked every source code of each site i recently visited in the web. strange: within the source code i always see the same javascript line. it hasn't its origin from the internet. i started to investigate and saw, zonealarm is doing this. but by this time zonealarm wasn't active. however, zonealarm manipulated alg.exe so that http_referer will not be shown. the script pointed to my machine (127.0.0.1:3006) to the port 3006. i started tcpview from sysinternals to see who is using this port and saw alg.exe. well, i just deinstalled the software to be sure. Guess what: MY SITE IS BACK IN BUSINESS!

The script from Dave_L helped me a lot!

Thanks to all.

I think it's a security feature so maybe best left alone... that said, I can't be bothered to find out what it does (maybe stops php files being run from remote sites?)

I've had the same problem and have typed up an (potential) solution here:
https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewto ... 3&start=0#forumpost202503

Hope it helps.

P.S. This might sound a bit rude, but there are loads of threads about this subject so perhaps we could all reply to the one linked to above?
