Re: uBlock Blocking CSP Raises Questions

Yes and thanks for that. I wouldn't be so sure of the "most of us" part though.

I'd like to stick to the topic as well I was just answering the old news posts.

Re: Google Chrome Will Block Tab-Under Behavior

Yeas, most browser hijackers work by redirecting through multiple domain hoops. This does seem a good development https://www.androidcentral.com/chrome-updates-set-kill-annoying-auto-redirects-and-trick-click-pop-ups.

Though I wonder if it might affect legitimate redirects.

Re: Google's plan to block some ads has ad-tech companies scrambling

-Mark- Lets not fret ourselves. I think its clear by the way Google is acting that they are trying to block competition through rules set by a group in which they obviously hold a strong clout. Now you might say Chrome is a platform but that does not change the fact that it is in fact a browser use...

Okay but how exactly are they determined to be spurious?

And I linked to The Register which is generally considered a respectable news source. Thanks for linking the GitHub issue as well.

Re: uBlock Blocking CSP Raises Questions

@Lanik That is why I asked for this subforum to be created. I do not closely follow the GitHub repositories and events like these slip by. I am pretty sure many usual uBO users missed this news as well.

This forum would serve well for news like this especially if users post news such as this often.

uBlock Blocking CSP Raises Questions

uBlock Origin currently blocks all CSP from being sent by a website if any tracking script is blocked such as Google Analytics which is used by a lot of websites. CSP allows website admins to determine what content gets loaded on webpagea (JS, CSS, iframes etc.) thus preventing XSS like attacks and ...

Re: Google's plan to block some ads has ad-tech companies scrambling

They are just planning to create a monoply here by setting arbitrary rules they seemingly plan to block out the competition. A browser's role should be limited in that it serves content and protects the end user but this is completely unjust. The user should decide what they block. And from what I k...

Lately I haven't been unable to keep up with the ongoings of EasyList and and adblock in general. I had to run through many different sources to satisfy my FOMO :mrgreen:.

Re: Silent Crypto Miners Appearing on Websites

So, the site keys that are listed and contain multiple domains probably belong to one person/entity?
Eg: http://www.whorunscoinhive.com/coinhive_id/OT1CIcpkIOCO7yVMxcJiqmSWoDWOri06

Also when tried to search kickass.cd on the whorunscoinhive.com website it did not detect it :/

Were you the one who added it on the ABP page?
