An exploit has been discovered that could allow ad blocking filter list maintainers for the Adblock Plus, AdBlock, and uBlocker browser extensions to create filters that inject remote scripts into web sites.

With ad blockers having a a user base of over 10 million installs, if malicious scripts were injected it would have a huge impact as they could perform unwanted activity such as stealing cookies, login credentials, causing page redirects, or other unwanted behavior.
The $rewrite filter option

For those who are unfamiliar with how ad blockers work, they utilize lists of URLs related to advertisements and malicious behavior and are typically maintained by a small team of people or even a single person. When these lists are loaded by an ad blocking extension, like Adblock Plus, the extension will prevent the browser from connecting to the listed URLs and thus advertisements or malicious scripts are unable to load.

For example, below is the filter list for the popular ad blocking list called EasyList.

Hello Dan,
Can you please check your PM here @ CoU from me and read the two I sent.
Two files were clean and I chose to allow. I ran both files at VT. Both looked good.
Also you will find what I ran into also with whitelisting. I do believe I can reproduce what happened if you need the exact details. I just need to restore my image backup...

Regards,
Hardhead

Hello Dan,

I did a clean uninstall except removing the settings and everything seems to be running fine so far on Win 8.1 home.
One thing please, could you check your PM here and reply to what I found to happen on 2/13/2019.
Love the max gui which you can use the arrow buttons to move in any direction..  :)

Thank you and I'm looking forward to reporting anything unusual and the 5.0 version coming in the future!

Regards,
Hardhead

I cleaned install 4.99 and when I select white list my scroll up-down and sideways don't work unless I left click on an entry first. Then if I say switch to user log, the same thing happens.
I’m running Win 8.1 and if you highlight or right click on any entry you should be able to move any direction with the arrow buttons in max or minimize. Just highlight the entry and try that. See if that works for you. It works for me on Win 8.1.

Sorry, thing I forgot to mention is I’m sure Dan is still working on the blacklist for the next version that will be released.  :)

@Shmu26 Can't you just delete all the entry for that file in userlog/whitelist, put VS in "always on" and just run the file again?
If it's not auto deleted it should let you give the chance to run the file ( and VS will list it as user allowed in the logs and you could run it from now on)

Atleast i think what i did when i wanted to run a file with about 4 Virus Total flags.
With 5 it would be auto quarantined
I just did that recently myself about 3 days ago . I deleted logs and whitelist and retrained VS. I had over 428 entries and now after I retrained I only have 292 in my whitelist.  I have only had 3 blocks one of them where my AV definitions which Dan fixed, my AV upgrade was blocked and I allowed it. The last one was Raymond’s MDS & SHA Checksum which I reported as an false positive. https://raylin.wordpress.com/downloads/md5-sha-1-checksum-utility/ I use the free version.

I think the most important thing is to know that your computer is clean. Have a expert check if you don’t know how before making any changes. JMO... Then I would go with VS and its alerts. Remember VS can stop bad things but if you are infected that should be fixed first.
I would recommend farbar.

Right click then CTRL C then CTRL V
That gets me half way there.
I can copy the log entry, and I can paste it into notepad, but can I somehow turn it into a whitelist entry?
I have never added a custom rule before but I would think that it would be done clicking Rules.
You can can wait for someone to confirm.

I don't know how to whitelist a block entry in the User log. It doesn't seem that I can copy the details to clipboard or anything. Am I missing something? I guess I am out of practice with VoodooShield.
Right-click the entry... Whitelist window pops-up.
Doesn't work for me. I right click, and nothing happens.

Right click then CTRL C then CTRL V

Thanks Al,
My only problem is the nicotine juice and nothing else. When I stopped the cigarettes it took a while and I could taste things better and actually my smell was changed too. I was amazed how I could smell things now that I never could before and also not waking up in the morning coughing up flim anymore. God only knows what chemicals that I was injesting because I smoked menthol cigarettes. I’m not saying that vaping is the answer but it helped me get away from cigarettes and I can honestly say I have not smoked a cigarette for about 2 1/2 years to date. Somewhere around there give or take a few months. I was introduced to vaping at my last job from a younger fellow that was my lead man boss. I started working there in 2013 and it took me a while to get off the cigarettes but I finally did and like I said now I cannot stand the smell of them. I have been to the doctor and I can smell in the room if a patient that smokes has been in the room before me. That’s how much my smell has changed. Now I do have allergies and that is due to pollen in the summer and winter and sometimes I sneeze but I use a over the counter medicine that helps me with that.

I will conquer the vaping. I know its just a matter of time and I’m not getting any younger.
Thank you you for your support !
I will not let myself down or you either.

Congrats to you E ! ;)
I quit smoking cigarettes a couple years ago. I did try vaping in order to wing myself off cigarettes and it worked for me and I don’t cough anymore.  Since then I still Vape and I have quit that too several times. Currently I’m trying to stop vaping using no nicotine to 3 percent. Hopefully soon I can stop that too altogether. I can say I cannot stand the smell of cigarettes.
Glad to hear that you are smokeless now as I hope to stop vaping very soon!

Any chance to get the whitelist screen to fullscreen? (what you see is maximised whitelist enabled) When you see stuff like 10+ firefox rules and have to scroll all the way to the right to see which one is from which process is not easy for the eyes :D
VS 4.69 Win 10, 64bit
I like that idea too and would like to see User Log added.
Running Windows 8.1 here.
