it is a list of the latest malwares from urlhaus. Someone created this filter and updates it 2 times a day => this can be a problem but still worth adding
this is a source that I use to test extensions where many of the tested extensions miss
Thanks

There are many filters out there for uBO. Like to list the bests which will not bog down net surfing?

any of them if you don't add too many filters. It should be less than 300-500k filters depends on your specs
ublock seems to be the lightest and most configurable
adguard is the least configurable, can't update custom filters

ublock because you can add all types of filter available and it's fully compatible

In the new AdGuard beta 3.0.3 you van add and update custom filters.
It's a bit lighter than before, but uBlock remains the lightest and most configurable.

Special request: ADD off the shelf Chrome with safe browsing and popup/adblock enabled when testing malware/phishing websites with these two ADDITIONAL FLAGS enabled:
- block unsafe downloads over insecure connections
- mark non-secure origins as non-secure (actively mark as unsafe)

Consider every page non-blocked over HTTPS connection as a FAIL. This makes the testing job easier for you since you only have to check HTTPS websites, for this 'hardened Chrome option".

This 'hardened Chrome variant' provides a better insight over the added value of an extension or adding an additional URL block list to an already bloated micro management general purpose blocker.

Does this include nano adblocker since it is based of uBlock Origin (uBO)
You can add it to nano adblocker similar way you add filters to ublock origin

You can see wich lists your ublocker has, and nano has more filters by default, but no...it doesnt include that filter evjl posted

Yes my question was is this filter compatible with Nano Adblocker since it only says uBO, so i was not sure. I realise it is not included by default, lol, just wanted to know if it works within Nano :p

I will check it out. Thanks
however, I'm afraid it would block some safe downloads coming from http sites. It's a deal-breaker for me

I do appreciate your efforts and tests. I sincerely think it will provide new insights. When it is so easy to protect oneself from malware (drive-by) downloads from HTTP websites, this point of view should be taken into consideration (average PC-user does not play with software but simply uses it), maybe not for power users testing software, but for people helping 'Average Joe/Jane' PC-users.

E.g when Bitdefender Traffic light blocks 17 out of 30 and Malware Bytes blocking blocks 28 out of 30, it might make sense to replace Bitdefender with Malware Bytes extension. When you only had one sample originating from HTTPS and that one was blocked by Bitdefender Trafficlight and missed by Malware Bytes this fact would change the perspective on what extension to choose (advise) for average users.

malwarebytes blocked many well known legitatite sites. i could not white list them. i had to

uninstall malwarebytes. just my opinion.
Kinda user dependant, myself i rarely run into that case and whitelisting is very simple
With decent high-end pc i have no slowdowns, wich probably do exist on low specs pcs
I think i rather have higher security with higher false positive count, than hitting miss once:sneaky:

Checked latest links from VX-Vault, MalC0de, OpenPhish and Phisktank (5 of each in that order):

20 in total - 13 x Bitdefender blocks (red B) and 7 Google Safe browsing blocks (Security error) for what I can check BDTL * GSB are best combo (EDIT) for me.
