I'm running one. I have to actively monitor all payouts as it seems this script is pretty easy to generate fraud image views with.

Else its impossible to see if its fraud or not. (Almost)

I used to do a paid hosting service. I stopped that around 7 or 8 months ago. Too easy to cheat. For example:

Standard code:
Image

Modify to this and it will credit earnings. The end user won't even see an image load, but each hit to the users website credits a view:
Image

I talked to them about it. The only thing you can do is review accounts

somewhere on the forum i posted a fix for that part

find below code at line 252 in index_dl.cgi

Code: Select all


$f->{method_premium}=1 if $premium;
my $skip_download0=1 if $c->{m_i} && $file->{file_name}=~/\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$/i && $file->{file_size}<1048576*5;
if(!$skip_download0 && !$f->{method_free} && !$f->{method_premium} && $c->{pre_download_page} && $c->{enabled_prem})


replace it with

Code: Select all

 
$f->{method_premium}=1 if $premium;
#my $skip_download0=1 if $c->{m_i} && $file->{file_name}=~/\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$/i && $file->{file_size}<1048576*5;
#if(!$skip_download0 && !$f->{method_free} && !$f->{method_premium} && $c->{pre_download_page} && $c->{enabled_prem})
if(!$f->{method_free} && !$f->{method_premium} && $c->{pre_download_page} && $c->{enabled_prem})


on that way they always see the pre download page ( select free or premium)

that should solve the direct counting as it always get redirected to that page first

Anyone running a paid image host wanna try that? My host is non-paid.
