Deny referrer using map directive

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hello!

I have a map directive like this :

map $http_referer $badboys {
hostnames;
default 0;
“~*hitleap.com” 1;
}

and already defined on server block like this :

server {
… skip …
if ($badboys) {
return 406;
}

… skip …

}

but, if I tried to access them using given referral, still got HTTP 200.
$ curl -I https://domain.name -L -e hitleap.com | grep 200
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time
Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left
Speed
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:–:-- --:–:--

  • –:--:-- 0
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Is there any additional configuration needed?
Any help will be appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi there,

For info:

This should work as-is; but when using “hostnames”, you probably don’t
need the regex match. Just “.hitleap.com” will do what you possibly
want. (It is not the same: both will block a.hitleap.com; but only one
will block ahitleap.com or hitleap.com.a.)

but, if I tried to access them using given referral, still got HTTP 200.
$ curl -I https://domain.name -L -e hitleap.com | grep 200

It works for me, using http: (because I don’t have a test https: server
to hand). What happens when you leave all of the “…skip…” parts
empty?

Is there any additional configuration needed?

Do your logs show that this request was handled in the server{} block
that you think it was handled in?

You do the trick, just using “.hitleap.com” and the regex matched.

$ curl -IL https://www.domain.name -e www2.hitleap.com
