PAVUK web spider: Image hiding techniques defeated - test pages

pavuk ( ) is a very sophisticated web spider, with some very nice configuration options. PAVUK goes on where wget et al throw the towel in the ring. ;-)

Image Hiding Test Pages

These URLs can be used to test specific pavuk features.

This includes some of the tests that come with pavuk itself and are run by the make check command which you run after


have completed.


If you want to run all tests at once, but prevent pavuk from spidering the complete site (which I'd rather frown upon, if you get my drift), you may find it useful to know that these tests are all located inside this directory, so you can easily achieve this by specifying the URL of this page as the starting URL for grabbing/testing the test cases, while specifying the additional '-dont_leave_dir' command line option to prevent pavuk from traveling outside this directory.


Encryption techniques and how to 'defeat' them

JavaScript Caesarian cipher URL encryption


Encoded/encrypted JavaScript URL decryption routines

Test URL: Encoded/encrypted JavaScript URL decryption routine (encrypted_image_url_test1.html)

Dynamic URL names: one-time URLs


Further enhancements... (guru level)



Other test cases

We offer additional test cases for use with pavuk ('make check') on this site. These include:
