Linked issues with restrictions

Is there a way to block an issue that is linked to another one until the original issue is fixed?

Just can see a solution for the installed version of Jira based on Groovy Script Runner:
The maximum i can imagine under OnDemand would be some Javascript added to the announcememt banner which scans the DOM tree for linked issues, checks their resolution using REST Api and if there is any unresolved issue just hides the DIV element containing the workflow transitions

but would never would dare to post this as a serious answer since it can easily be bypassed ...

Hi Mateo,

You can do it easily using modules "Condition on linked issues" or "Validator on linked issues" from plugin JIRA Workflow Toolbox. I show you an example:

Let's suppose you want to block a certain transition when current issue is linked to another issue by an "is blocked by" issue link and linked issue is any status different from "Resolved" and "Closed". If you were going to use "Validator on linked issues" from JIRA Workflow Toolbox plugin you would use the following configuration (I use three screenshots to show the configuration screen and 1 to show the validator once configured):
