Re: Fake video sharing Android App !!

March 17, 2015 04:24AM
@itpp thanks for suggestion but the problem is , this is the invalid way of
blocking requests belong to android and the reason is , our official
android app will be releasing soon and filtering based on this user-agent
will block valid users as well. So we need something different such as,
adding some custom header in official android app and filtering requests
based on that (Maybe).

@Francis, thanks for explanation and suggestion. As you suggested, i should
enable extra logging and currently following is the log format enabled on
nginx. Does nginx support extra logging format ? i want to log each
parameter to distinguish between valid and invalid requests. Following is
current log format :

log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request"
'
'$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';


Thanks.
