I stumbled upon this new add on for Firefox. Don't know if any of you have heard or it or are currently using it. Try it out. Why not its FREE.


Protect against redirections to fake AV pages, fake video, fake Flash updates, etc. by changing the Referer header when coming from a search engine result.

Thanks. No harm adding this.

If anyone's wondering, the options are in the add-ons manager.

This only works if the Bad Page only serves malicious content if the visitor comes directly from a search engine. I don't know if this is always the case.

When you search for something on Google and click on a link, the page you are visiting knows where you came from using the Referer. For example on our site we know the following:
[attachment=158]

So the Referer is not all bad, it might come in handy for certain sites.
