I'm trying to figure out exactly what parts of rules from Adblock Plus apply. I think that the Untangle AdBlocker rules are just being matched to parts of a URL and being blocked without any other analysis.
For example, a rule of .adserver.com will block www.adserver.com or subdomain.adserver.com. Or, .adserver.com/ad* will not block www.adserver.com, but will block .adserver.com/adimag .adserver.com/adsrc, www.adserver.com/adsrv, etc.
Is this how it operates?
I found this file (https://gitorious.org/untangle/src/b...ck_rick752.txt) in the source code. Its an AdBlock Plus 1 rule file.
In this file I find lines likeorCode:&partner$subdocument,domain=~akinator.comdo these perform the same in Untangle AdBlocker as in AdBlock Plus?Code:#*(class*=_advert_)
Maybe simpler, what special operations are in Untangle AdBlocker? * for a wildcard is obvious, but are there any others?
I hope I am being clear on what I am asking.
