    Here's my security setup bro:

    Custom HOSTS file which has many known bad domains
    AdBlock Plus with the Malware Domains Filter, Facbeook Annoyances, Tracking
    NoCoin Extension for Chrome (to prevent sites from CoinMining)

    That's all great stuff, and it looks like it is working too. :)

    I've moved on from Adblock Plus to the combination of uBlock Origin and Scriptsafe with PrivacyBadger or Ghostery - depending on which browser I am using. Scriptsafe + uBlock Origin also allow custom host lists - with a large list of coin sites to avoid, along with other baddies.

    The internet is constant change, tools upgrade, new tools arrive and old tools while still good it's nice to check out new solutions and change your POV from time to time.

    You try new things and even move to them, even if the old tools are still around and doing well. They do more or less what the others do, I tried them and liked the interfaces and I'm used to them now.

    What you've got works great too. :)

    Windows 7: Symantec / Norton blocks SHA-2 signature updates

    Published on 14th August 2019 by Günter Born
    [​IMG]
    [ English ] Users of Windows systems that have installed Symantec Antivirus or Norton Antivirus are in trouble for the August 2019 Patchday. These antivirus solutions block the deployment of security updates that were only signed with SHA-2, at least under Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

    -----------------------------

    [​IMG]
    Windows 7 with Symantec or Norton must not install KB4512486 or KB4512506
