Nimi Web Cleanser 20110808 released.

Today lat­est version of Nimi Web Cleanser was released — an revision, now shields based ​for better adjust­ment.

User can change which shields should be used by default, but also can adjust those settings per webpage doma­in.

Some of the avail­able shields:

  • Blocks check - Pattern checks DIV elements class, name and id. Those can nest other elements.
  • Anchors check - Pattern checks anchors target addresses.
  • Images check - Pattern checks images source addresses (only IMG elements). Images can be used for data submission.
  • Objects check - Pattern checks data information of OBJECT elements (used to embedd plugins, media files and other).
  • Scripts check - Pattern checks SCRIPT elements source or their content (up to 1024 characters). Those can be used to inject on page content or data submission.
  • Frames check - Pattern checks source address of IFRAME elements. Those can nest other elements.
  • Smart check - Enhances previous shields with:

    • Size pattern check - for images and IFRAME elements for common sizes.
