Tumblr Evil Detector


This is a simple TamperMonkey script that does one thing: warn you if you're about to reblog a post with a script in it. Malicious users will often hide javascript tags in the caption of a photograph which detects when you're actually looking at the page (through mouse or keyboard actions) and redirects you a site full of malware, spam, or porn. This script is intended to help prevent that, and make your follower's reading experience more pleasant.


You will need Tampermonkey installed in your browser, then install the Javascript file found in this directory into Tampermonkey.


The URL filter currently only identifies pages on Tumblr that are POST pages. If the user has a custom DNS, sadly we can't detect them, but few if any spammers go to those lengths to snare people. The current behavior is that, if a post on the page contains malicious javascript, that post entry will be decorated with a new border and the footer of the post will contain a black box with the words "SCRIPT DETECTED."

That's all it does. It just tells you, it doesn't fix anything for you. It's very short. But it's also very effective.
