     The purpose of Block This is to show off one of the many exploits available for poorly coded URL filtering applications/proxies. It is very easy to use and can help anyone who is interested in creating some form of URL blocking program. In this new version of Block This (v2.0), the code is much smaller than it used to be. It also is easier for someone to understand if they wish to buils a similar application using my code as an example. If you like this code and you can put it to good use, please vote for it. I spent a long time fixing this code up and nothing would make me feel better than to know that people can make use of it. Special thanks to Adam Wechsler who was a big help in cleaning up the application!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
