letmewatchthis.ac

Post by Hans_Olo » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:00 am

Hi,

This report applies to www.letmewatchthis.ac

Ads keep popping up in a new tab the first time I click on any link. They only pop up on the first time I click them every few minutes, however. I've noticed that the U.R.L. for the new tab mostly says "hitcpm.com", at least until it redirects.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Hans

That seems to have done the job, thanks a ton!

Can I ask you what each portion of that filter does so that I might be able to figure out how to help myself in the future?

The popup is (as you can see in the logger of your adblocker):

Code: Select all

http://hitcpm.com/watch?key=*&kw=%5B%22letmewatchthis%22%2C%22primewire%22%2C%221channel%22%2C%22-%22%2C%22watch%22%2C%22movies%22%2C%22online%22%2C%22free%22%5D&refer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.letmewatchthis.ac%2F&scrWidth=&scrHeight=&tz=1
so, I kept only the part I thought is pretty common. I added the $popup keyword.

I've read that filters guide a bunch of times, but it never clicked with me that you could use $popup. Is the equal sign part of what is being filtered (i.e., anything that contains "/watch?key=" without the quotation marks), or is it some other sort of operator?

Thanks for your time, I'm sure that this will help me a ton (as well as others).

"=" is part of the address.

That's what I thought. Thanks! I'm sure that this will help tons of people figure out their own filters.

What does "$webrtc," do?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebRTC

Some advertising networks are abusing this special protocol to inject crap in the pages (ads, popups etc)

$webrtc blocks such things in ABP-like adblockers

see here:
https://adblockplus.org/en/filters

the various keywords (webrtc too)

Should I, then, use pipes to add this filter for all my streaming domains (e.g., something like $webrtc,domain=letmewatchthis.ac|primewire.ag)?
