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.

VoodooShield / Choosen Toggle on and off idea 💡
« on: January 24, 2019, 04:46:45 am »
Hello Dan,
I have an idea to alert toggle VS from on to off when using a third party uninstaller like Revo, Ccleaner, etc. Allowing the user to choose and given them other options than the MS uninstaller.
What do you think?

Anybody else like this idea?
Please reply if you do!

This is an awesome read and might I add that the same thing happened to my mother and it was a spoofed call using a Microsoft store telephone number. I reported the number to Microsoft. Be very careful and never give out any information unless you call the bank or store, etc.

Security & Technology News / City of Atlanta hit by ransomware attack

The City of Atlanta has been targeted in a ransomware attack that has impacted a number of its systems.

“The City of Atlanta is currently experiencing outages on various internal and customer facing applications, including some applications that customers use to pay bills or access court-related information,” a spokesperson for the city explained, in a statement emailed to Fox News.

The outage, which included the encryption of some city data, did not affect the public safety department, water department or Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chief Operating Officer Richard Cox said.

An efficient blocker add-on for various browsers. Fast, potent, and lean.

uBlock Origin is NOT an "ad blocker": it is a wide-spectrum blocker -- which happens to be able to function as a mere "ad blocker". The default behavior of uBlock Origin when newly installed is to block ads, trackers and malware sites -- through EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Peter Lowe’s ad/tracking/malware servers, various lists of malware sites, and uBlock Origin's own filter lists.

A newly discovered exploit in most modern processors could make your computer or phone vulnerable to attacks. But chipmakers say they've got fixes ready to go.

Several researchers, including a member of Google's Project Zero team, found that a design technique used in chips from Intel, Arm and others could allow hackers to access data from the memory on your device. The problem impacts processors going back more than two decades and could let hackers access passwords, encryption keys or sensitive information open in applications.

The flaws, known by the names Spectre and Meltdown, aren't unique to one particular chipmaker or device. Instead, they impact everything from phones to PCs and servers.

"It's not really one vendor's problem," Steve Smith, head of Intel's data center engineering operations, said during a conference call Wednesday. "It's not an issue with our product. It's not an issue with someone else's product." It's a general design issue that impacts most modern chips, he said.

AMD, Intel's chief rival in supplying processors for computers and data centers, said the exploit has little impact on its processors. One possible exploit could be resolved with software and operating system updates with "negligible performance impact," AMD said, while the other two don't affect AMD chips because of differences in its architecture.

"The threat and the response to the three variants differ by microprocessor company, and AMD is not susceptible to all three variants," the company said in a statement. "Due to differences in AMD's architecture, we believe there is a near zero risk to AMD processors at this time."

Apple has already released there update to version iOS 11.2.2 and Mac OS which I installed January 8th.
