going back through these posts, there seems to be either a monthly update or every couple of months.
I wonder what they use as a trigger event to decide it's time for a new release.

Hi Guys and Girls.

 

With all this in Browser mining this dude is fighting an uphill battle. Atleast he is trying.

Host file

There is also an Adblock subscription for this one.

 

Another subscription from Adblock in host file format MalwareDomainList

Thank you for the update info Hazelnut.

I always wonder what they've declassified when the Hosts file decreases in size by almost 30kb.

They take away a LOT of "Fun and games" sites :).

Wonder if they do not work with a lot of Adblock, uBlock enc subscriptions, not to duplicate the entries

Anybody know anything about this CoinBlockerLists host file ?

Giving it a whirl in uBlock Origin and the Windows HOSTS file format since some of the URL's in it (only 27 of them) are blocked by filters I already had in uBlock Origin - I don't know how many were already blocked in my HOSTS file though.

Already have it ticked in uBlock Origin, also as I use Opera that now has a  built-in cryptocurrency-mining blocker.

Where does one draw the line to protect oneself on the web :huh:.

I don't think you can draw the line or come to an end point, simply because things keep changing and adblocking software isn't what it used to be just 5-10 years ago because of the new subscriptions that can block malicious activity instead of just annoyances like an animated ad banner.

After playing around with Pi-hole

Found this entry that contains a massive amount of 3rd party host file entries including Winhelp2002 entries.

"almost" like an one host stop file now :)
