This really isn't even something you can remotely compare. Not protecting yourself against driveby downloads and background scripts because you have adblock is like having unprotected sex because you only sleep with nice people. Sure, the risk might be lower but it's still very real.

As every halfway security aware person will tell you, any website you visit might be compromised at any given point. With the lack of countermeasures implemented by many providers, having malicious code in a normally legitimate website or meeting some DNS hijacking isn't nearly as rare as you would think.

i.e. use noscript, keep your browser up to date at all times, make sure your browser has no elevated privileges in any way, ideally have a personal proxy with AV functionality and then use adblock to top it off for convenience and some added security (although the added benefit will be very small if you implemented the other steps properly).

But surely you know better because I bet that your knowledge of my field of work exceeds mine by far.

#255 - fragman (08/12/2014) [-]
Ok fine let me explain it to you since you all seem to have some semi-correct knowledge on that subject. Using noscript properly means no scripts will be executed (shocking, huh). This includes XSS, clickjacking, driveby downloads and other fun little ways which are the dominant cause of malware delivered via browser. Another way of doing it is malicious HTML code, but unless you are running an outdated version of your browser this will rarely be effective.
Using adblock or even better, a local proxy which does that for you (e.g. squid with AdZap, the main reason being that this method can't be counteracted on the server side with some anti-adblock gimmick) of course does reduce the risk of malware delivery but claiming that it is necessary is just complete nonsense.

If you want to be protected against malware while seeing ads on the internet (however unreasonable a request that is), you can easily do it by combining noscript with a local proxy running something like clamav. Hell, since you're doing it at home you can even break open SSL, deliver a self signed certificate to the client so you can scan encrypted traffic for malware too.

In conclusion, claiming AdBlock is necessary to stay malware-free is just not true.
However, if the site operator (admin) allows malicious advertising on his site, you might want to reconsider generating ad revenue on this site in the first place, that is correct.

I've been advertising your channel skipper a lot lately, and someone suggested uploading a content for it. I did re-host it on userscripts, but if you don't mind I would like to upload a post about it. And yes, I have been making sure to give credit where it's due for you <3 It is an awesome thing.

I decided to do an EZ setup
www.mediafire.com/?b5qdg8cez3563db

I wasn't able to finish it in time before the post was out of its 24 hour slot, but it has a readme with some instructions so you don't have to keep repeating yourself

What do you think?
User avatar #26 - venumb (06/18/2012) [-]
Is it alright if I take what you have so far and edit it and repost the results as long as I mention your name? I plan on adding GUI and other features other than Skipper. The auto thumb/thumb down will probably be in there too.

Really good work on the idea :)
#27 to #26 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I really wouldn't recommend the thumb down feature, there is a vote limit for a certain timespan which could have negative impact on functionality and would also motivate people to post their content outside the channel.
But expanding it in general, sure.
User avatar #28 to #27 - venumb (06/18/2012) [-]
I guess your right. I'll leave the thumbing out of the expanded release. I have other ideas that I'm am way more motivated on accomplishing anyway.

If you want, I can make a quick step by step guide for you to post for Chrome users and how to edit the skipped channels.
#22 to #21 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
this would be really nice. but since my 24 hour frame is almost done and this content will go back to the depths of *************** I dont think it will be necessary.
#23 to #22 - negrocop (06/18/2012) [-]
Ah I truly doubt that. This was a huge step forward for FJ today, it'll be remembered for a while. And you could upload a Firefox guide and a Chrome guide for newbies in the following days. Especially probably around Thursday or Friday since a lot of Bendingtime posts will come about Saturday. There will be tons of bitchin about it. :P
#24 to #23 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
good idea. I like it.
In this case it'd be wonderful if you could provide the chrome guide :)

Oh, I thought you said that there was a way to edit the source code.
#16 to #15 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
ah now I get it.
Depends on your browser. You might want to check out this if you're using chrome:
stackoverflow [DOT] com/questions/5258989/manually-adding-a-userscript-to-google-chrome
#17 to #16 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
rest should be in the content description.
User avatar #18 to #17 - natedimes ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
If you're referring to adding the channel skipper, don't worry about that it installed automatically :). I was just wondering about when you said that you could edit the source code so it only skips certain channels.
#19 to #18 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
actually that's what I meant...
you'll need to find where the script is stored in order to edit it. that should be explained in the description pretty much, on the stackoverflow site you'll find the various user-datadir defaults for chrome.
then edit the file script.js in notepad++ or something like that

depends on your browser. if you're using firefox with greasemonkey, you can simply create a new user script (after you've defined a default userscript editor, e.g. notepad++) and paste the source code. then edit the array defined in line 9 to be filled with all the channels you'd like skipped, like this:
var skipit = new Array("channel1", "channel2", "channel3");
#3 to #2 - Sunset has deleted their comment [-]
#4 to #3 - fragman ONLINE (06/16/2012) [-]
this is a little ugly, but I don't know of any better way at this moment.
you'll find the script in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\1_0\script.js
while "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" is a random string. I don't know how that's generated but if it's based on the script source code it should be "camaaaeklepkjffjiookkjabipiidofl".
In this folder there are two files, manifest.json and script.js (which is the one you can edit using any text editor and just save it)
