Thanks, Martin. Dan Goodin Have you tried clearing your cache and LocalStorage? I’m sorry to hear this has happened but thankful for your work and support. I agree. They must now be considered compromised same as the extensions. Both Nano Defender and Nano Adblocker have been removed from the Chrome Web Store! Thank you Martin. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/report/gabbbocakeomblphkmmnoamkioajlkfo?hl=en&gl=GB report abuse to chrome! The only specificity of this set of 3 Nano Defender filter lists compared to what we know of adding our own (uBO / Dashboard / Filter Lists / Custom – Import…) is what is described in the article’s step 3.4 : “Locate the variable userResourcesLocation and replace the initial value [..]”, uBO provides detailed information about this userResourcesLocation setting: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Advanced-settings#userresourceslocation. cwtv.com, User Agent Switcher, an extension that had more than 100,000 active users until Google removed it earlier this month is reported to have done the same thing. A website is perceptibly slower with Nano Defender enabled. In most cases this should invalidate the session cookies and prevent anyone from using them to gain unauthorized access. They just don’t call it “acceptable ads”, but “useful ads”. You have to be on the reader page. Read and change anything you send or receive from websites. As a Luddite who still uses Pale Moon as his primary browser, I guess I’m I’m left out in the cold. Release date 4/23/2018 . Holy shit…thank you for this article, I was so confused what’s going on. lifehacker.co.in, They understood people simply leaving the page and we get kind of different notice. Great. Original developer still owns Edge store listing and he made it hidden himself because it won’t receive any updates. > Brave doesn’t operate such a whitelist, apart from the whitelist it operates. It’s a cycle and sooner or later these browsers will be replaced by one that respects its users and allows such flexibility but for now we are stuck with this sick mentality that is a manifestion of the culture in our current landscape so we will have to wait and see what the future brings but I can assure you at this pace chrome will have a neat spot in the pages of history right next to IE but maybe this time it will take down a few others that have followed the same path with it. Since Brave is underreported here, such an opportunity is yet to arise. So far it also blocks ads about non-blocking ads, antiblock that is, at sites. why would you use nano over UBO anyway.? (easy). Möglicherweise nutzen Sie Ublock Origin oder ein anderes Adblocker Plugin. , @Thorky, your comment got me to test bild.de and despite NanoDefender’s integration to uBO …, “Warum sehe ich BILD.de nicht? “This is a good example why I strongly believe in limiting or even not installing any extensions”, This is exactly how the major browser companies would like us to think about adblockers…. Nano Defender can only protect one adblocker and will prioritize Nano Adblocker. Thanks Ali, Just did keep the circle grow by 1. I stand corrected. I know there are a lot of good devs out there with good extensions that would never do this kind of thing. If you are using uBlock Origin, there are a few extra installation steps to follow.. I was affected by this because I used Nano Defender to supplement uBlock Origin. I'm glad that's all, I guess - they could have done much worse. There are many reports of users' Instagram accounts being affected, however. The process is a bit complicated for uBlock Origin, but it works without having to install Nano Adblocker in the browser of choice. I uninstalled it without being butthurt, just wishing the guy good luck, at least he properly supported Edge browser, both version at the time, unlike uBlock. Step 1. 4) Log out of your accounts. Copyright SOFTONIC INTERNATIONAL S.A. © 2005- 2020 - All rights reserved, Time to remove Nano Adblocker and Defender from your browsers (except Firefox). @Pierre, whatever the filters there will always be exceptions. The article might do well to update with this information. I bet you are just now using a browser that whitelists ads on the search result page by default, and you only block those via uBlock Origin. The GitHub page seems to suggest that it is. A shame as it had been my go to ad block extensions. Depending on how these scripts work, they may just display warnings when users visit the site with enabled adblockers or require that users deactivate the adblocker or whitelist the site to continue. Nano Defender is causing (further) breakage. So now I don’t run any ad-blocker because I save a lot of Web pages and it’s just too much work to keep saving and resaving due to some adblocker’s incompetence. Interestingly, the latest version in the Chrome Web Store is 18.104.22.168, dated 15 October. This is a far cry from the type of ads (website elements) we are talking about here.
