I get an ad in the text of this article. It appears as I scroll down and it says inReads by Teads. Is there a way to block it?

I'm seeing ads on forbes.com inner pages:
Image

newest easylist (regular adblock + adblock plus), chrome only.

ads are coming from:

Code: Select all

http://www.bostonwall.com/?EFjd=CT8KtMVUoktokklPqUmzClgJCS8zDkZMDyDMrTxuWlxdh9xbnkxbkkxkh9t4nkluD9xtnHmbikw9nlxcB9&zPRg=r9nVr9n%3D&qWgQH=xhlG9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9Jvi9FqdCEqHCFqTY6rTg4lexoWkqhkeOMhj8bWM94n6PGr6h&xazHJL=zrwZGgHlznMlJi6hqqxhwgHw5CePlqfbUgjZ7pjmemdYEjeDMDwZbBdbsnjheeyhsBlZ7jlbxAwkV

Code: Select all

http://www.forbes.com/sites/chrissmith/2016/08/04/american-olympians-fighting-for-25000-gold-medal-bonuses-at-rio-olympics/#5e12eb4228f4
after investigating, looks like it's coming from this script:

Code: Select all

http://i.forbesimg.com/forbes/scripts/ecf3d0ad.vendor.js
this in his turn pulling this script:

Code: Select all

https://s3.amazonaws.com/b3wf6mardflm8akxb3rscawubanbkiessllkbda7vbatkba/b3wf6mardflm8akxb3rscawubanbkiessllkbda7vbatkba
which is responsible for the changing domains.

we've also seen bostonwall.com in other sites and it's already inside the Hebrewlist.

we've also already seen similar news sites that are using s3.amazonaws.com/random to load their domain replace JS.

I can't post here as guest. The captcha is broken. (it loads as a blank white space)

Forbes blocking me from accessing.
Image

Is this something new? I am trying to access an article and end up blocked.

Code: Select all

http://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcome/?/&toURL=http://www.forbes.com/&refURL=&referrer=
I'm trying this on Chrome - most current my operating system will allow (Version 49.0.2623.112 (64-bit)
and firefox 48.0.1

---
Also on an unrelated note, is it possible to change my password on this site to something I can remember, rather than the code given to me when I hit "I forgot password?" I looked through my account settings but I am too frazzled from first trying to post as guest, having the captcha fail to work, then think I post but didn't, then try again and only see a blank white zone where the captcha should be.

Yep, tried the filters. Looks like they have done an update to "fix" the filters to protect their ads. I made sure to paste each row separately into the add filter section. (I found copying and pasting the whole block a mistake.)


For older articles I found webarchive as a means to access the article I was interested in reading.

Tested right now in firefox + ABP, chrome + ABP, using the filters above. All fine here.
Be sure using only 1 blocking extension (no ghostery, disconnect, ...)

Okay it seems to work now. Maybe it is a delayed effect, but it is slow. It will load the redirect, show the you must disable adblock for about 5 seconds, then it will refresh and I can see the pages. Time for me to sign off and go to bed now.

An alternative is to use the user script AdsBypasser https://greasyfork.org/fr/scripts/4881-adsbypasser

I have a big issue with EasyList. If I have it enabled and I disable ABP on Forbes and Everywhere, the Forbes website doesn't load at all (no Block-AdBlock banner, just a white page and Firefox spinning wheel).

If I disable EasyList everything is fine.

Any idea of what could cause this problem?
