htaccess hotlink prevent code modifications

Recommended Posts

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} .
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://([^.]+\.)?mysite\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !google\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !search\?q=cache [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/hotlink\.png$
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg)$ /hotlink.png [NC,L]
