ClearOS Rick Rolling Content Filter

Inspired by a segment on hak5. I customized the ClearOS filtered site page to give the users a more entertaining experience when someone tries to access a blocked site.

You can download the custom filter page here.

First backup the original filtered.php

cd /var/webconfig/htdocs/public/
cp filtered.php filtered.bak

 

Now override the filtered.php file with the custom one and copy an .mp3 of the song named NGGUP.mp3 to /var/webconfig/htdocs/public/. That's it! When someone goes to a blocked site, they'll get Rick Roll'd.

Customize ClearOS Login and Site Blocked Images

Customized Login

Replacing the default ClearOS logo on the login pages and proxy error pages is very simple.

That image is being pulled from:

/var/webconfig/htdocs/templates/standard-5.1/images/logo2.png

 

First backup the file:

cd /var/webconfig/htdocs/templates/standard-5.1/images/
cp logo2.png logo2.bak

 

Now copy your image to that directory, and as long as it's named logo2.png it will load. The original image is 109x128. You can get away with a lot more width than that, but you need to keep the height the same in order for the login box to display correctly. There's plenty of ways to do the actual copy, since I'm already logged into the ClearOS server, I'll just scp the file from my linux client.

[root@clearos images]# scp user@system:/example/directory/logo2.png ./

 

That's it! Now go to your ClearOS login page and you should that custom logo.
