A follow-up on our ad injection post from a couple of weeks ago. This takes a slightly deeper dive into the security risks associated with unwanted ad injectors. 
 
"Last month, we posted about unwanted ad injectors, a common side-effect of installing unwanted software. Ad injectors are often annoying, but in some cases, they can jeopardize users’ security as well. Today, we want to shed more light on how ad injector software can hijack even encrypted SSL browser communications."

Also, since they are still not completely blocked, is there a way or flag to stop them in Chrome, or to see if you have any working?

Thanks

Mike camped with us at Burning Man. He had an awesome outfit, which reminded me of the ED-209 robot from Robocop.
