Problem this snippet solves:

Based on the Block Referal Requests iRule here.

How to use this snippet:

Now with some more configuration parameters:

Code :

# 0=disable checking paths
# 1=check referer if requested URL is in "referer_check_paths" (default allow)
# 2=check referer if requested URL is NOT in "referer_check_paths" (default deny)
set ::setting_check_paths 1

# 0=exact match for path check
# 1=starts_with match of path check
set ::setting_path_check_starts_with 1

# 0=disable filetype checking
# 1=enable filetype checking
set ::setting_check_filetypes 0

# Set appropriate URL to send the user to
set ::error_url "[http://www.example.com/crosslink_not_allowed.html"]

class referer_check_paths {
  "/secure/"
  "/admin/"
  "/authenticated/"
}
class referer_check_filetypes {
  ".gif"
  ".jpg"
  ".jpeg"
  ".bmp"
  ".png"
}
class referer_allowed_hosts {
  "wwwa.example.com"
  "wwwb.example.com"
  "wwwc.example.com"
}

rule check_referers {
when RULE_INIT {

 # 0=disable checking paths
 # 1=check referer if requested URL is in "referer_check_paths" (default allow)
 # 2=check referer if requested URL is NOT in "referer_check_paths" (default deny)
 set ::setting_check_paths 1

 # 0=exact match for path check
 # 1=starts_with match of path check
 set ::setting_path_check_starts_with 1

 # 0=disable filetype checking
 # 1=enable filetype checking
 set ::setting_check_filetypes 0

 # Set appropriate URL to send the user to
 set ::error_url "http://company.com/crosslink_not_allowed.html"
