Nothing was proven about Kaspersky's wrong doing or ties with KGB as far as I'm aware, right? Eugune even wanted to show them the source code to prove there was nothing shady going on under the hood.
indeed, the issue wasn't that they were tied to the FSB/KGB or not, even if we all know that in communist countries, big corporations can't grow without some "partnership" with the government. The issue was the upload of a file who shouldn't be, unfortunately it was a Russian company collecting a file from an American intel agency employee...if the AV was Norton, i bet we won't even heard about it...

I'm surprised he didn't know how AVs even work. I would imagine someone working for the government should have basic understanding of the cloud and its influence on a security product.

Do people seriously still believe antivirus only use signatures?

When you get bored Try this link start randomly typing text, you can use the icons as if it were your desktop icons.
OMG, ty!

When people are looking over your shoulder when you are answering email, this is a nice prank.
Additionally you could block the SCRIPT EXECUTION from top 20 shady domains published by Symantec, top 10 spam domains of Spamhaus and Sophos Dirty Dozen Spampionship in Chrome's content setting in the format [*.]TLD (Top Level Domain the bytes behind the dot in a domain name).
Hey, there is any way to do this through ublock origin?

YES just type in My Filters
||*.TLD^

where TLD stands for Top Level Domain., e.g. (example from first TLD mentioned in Symantec 20 shady domains)
||*.country^
||*.stream^
etc




PS @oldschool not W_S just providing a helpful answer :)
Ty!

BTW, i checked the last results and opinions. But i was curious about performance impact of Malwarebytes (opening browser, loading pages, etc). How is it doing, compared with BDTL and EMSISOFT?

And, about Netcraft, can it be trusted? After the WOT incident, i'm a little skeptical with """unknown""" groups

Thanks for the info.
After reading the old posts of W_S, I think it is better to change the My Filters block rules to:
||*.country^$all,~document,~css,~image,~media
||*.stream^$all,~document,~css,~image,~media
etc

Note: this will display websites, but disables elements which might contain code (so they should be harmless)
1 - This will block all, except (~) page (document), stylesheets (css), images and media files (e.g. videos)
2 - $all only works with uB0 and is not AdBlock Plus syntax
