Re: Yavli filters

Post by david.rahrer »

These are the worst! I've been adding these domains to my local filter as I find them breaking through the ones already blocked. Recently, however, I've noticed that even if I block them the block of ads, along with the image placements (you can't see the image but it's hotspot is there and the link works) and descriptions remain. This happens on multiple sites (http://www.latinopost.com/articles/2063 ... tphone.htm).

I installed the EHH Element Hiding Helper addon for Firefox and was able to block the whole thing, but I'm wondering if there is a way to do this in a global rule of some sort. Also, does anyone know the official name of this outfit that supplies these ads? Considering the endless domains they seem to have, it would be nice to be able to submit these as we find them to adblock plus and have it send them to a central location so an aggregate list could be automatically assembled and updated with the rules. Maybe a special addon to work with adblock just for this.

Edit: just saw that Yavli is the official name for these.

Thanks!

This technique is no longer working for me. Even though I have the correct URL to block the spam-feeding site, only the images in the ads are now blocked.

I confirm that it works. Why doesn't this get added to the main list?

Force an update of the Easylist filters; Yavli adverts shouldn't bother us anymore.

My latest sites re "Promoted Content From The Web" ads

Post by MichaelIsGreat »

As of 07/26/2015, here is my latest update list of sites that I have to block the malicious and very annoying "Promoted Content From The Web" ads. As you can see with my previous posts on this particular post as Michael123 and then as MichaelIsGreat, this list has increased significantly but it should cover most links that need to be blocked.
Unfortunately, what is very clear with this type of ads is that this list will continue to grow over time, as they obviously create new sites continually I could say.
1) "Promoted Content From the Web" ads custom filter used with AdBlock Plus:
||iunbrudy.net^
||topdi.net^
||boomsbeat.com^
||chiuawa.net^
||contentolyze.net^
||fuandarst.com^
||anomiely.com^
||polawrg.com^
||simusangr.com^
||jusukrs.com^
||xylopologyn.com^
||yuasaghn.com^
||wensdteuy.com^
||spereminf.com^
||frevi.net^
||spoa-soard.com^
||gotraffic.net^
||lia-ndr.com^
||a.batarsur.com^
||batarsur.com^
||deuskex.link^
||aaa.deuskex.link^
||rugistratuan.com^
You could easily add just above what I put in 2) and 3) below to have a single list of added filters.

I also have created two separate custom filters in AdBlock Plus that surely could be added with this list above but that I have created separately, they have the following links:
2) Taboola ads custom filter used with AdBlock Plus:
||taboola.com^
||images.taboola.com^
||taboolasyndication.com^$third-party

3) Outbrain ads custom filter used with AdBlock Plus:
||outbrain.com^
||outbrain.com^$third-party

These are the three custom filters that I currently use and have with AdBlock Plus.

The subscription lists that I currently use with AdBlock Plus and that I got at en/subscriptions are the following ones:
---EasyList
---EasyPrivacy
---Adblock Warning Removal List
---Malware Domains.
That is it.

I thought fanboy implemented a fix for these ads?
