    Default Beware of Fake Ad blockers

    This story caught my eye since we were just discussing some of the ad blockers the last few days. As anything else, always make sure you only download trusted programs from trusted sources, and as you can clearly see by this, sometimes the fake stuff even makes it on to the trusted download stores...

    For me, what struck me was that Adblock Plus "outfoxes" Facebook and can identify on Chrome and Opera to look inside Facebook posts and pick out signs that it contains an ad, then blocking it.

    So, our affiliate channels get narrower.
