Windows 7: Malware Injection Surprise

Sure enough, it's there. Do you know if this applies to No-Scripts as well... would that fall under the classification of ad blocker? I'm not trying to "discuss" it, I just want to avoid breaking the rules.

If it's primary function is to block malicious code then that should be fine, if it blocks the odd add because of tracking cookies or other malicious code i think that would be allowed by the rules.

I think John put the rule in so that we wouldn't help non members get round this sites ads. So as long as all the ads on this site aren't blocked I don't think John will mind too much but anything that blocks ads as a primary function is strictly banned.

I hope this is useful to you and makes sense.

It does, and thanks. I don't use an Ad blocker, but I do use No-Scripts. I once had a cnit professor who was fanatical about security. He convinced me that to not run No-Scripts would be insane because of all the malicious code that routinely slips past anti-virus apps just browsing the web.

NoScript is not primarily an ad blocker. While it may block some ads, it is a security addon to protect your computer from malicious scripts while browsing. I consider it an essential addon.

Surprise, surprise, Technet Downloads Aren't Genuine??
Imagine my surprise this morning when booting into my Technet provided Windows 7 RTM to get a pop-up telling me that my Windows may not be genuine. Unfortunately one can't validate it until after October 22 as the WGA verification hasn't yet been updated. I guess I shall have to grin and...
