"We’ve made good progress:

* 22k ASNs are being monitored, or roughly 40% of active networks
* 1300 network administrators are actively using the tool
* 250 reports are sent daily to these administrators

Today, to provide Network Admins with even more useful information for protecting their users, we’re adding URLs related to Unwanted Software, Malicious Software, and Social Engineering to the set of information we share."

Read the blog post for more info about the new data.

"Today, we’re announcing a new measure to remove injected ads from the advertising ecosystem, including an automated filter in DoubleClick Bid Manager that removes impressions generated by ad injectors before any bid is made."

"We don’t expect the steps we’ve outlined above to solve the problem overnight, but we hope others across the industry take action to cut ad injectors out of advertising. With the tangle of different businesses involved—knowingly, or unknowingly—in the ad injector ecosystem, progress will only be made if we all work together. We strongly encourage all members of the ads ecosystem to review their policies and practices and take actions to tackle this issue."

"Unwanted ad injectors aren't part of a healthy ads ecosystem. They’re part of an environment where bad practices hurt users, advertisers, and publishers alike."

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

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."

We've extended the Safe Browsing API to include data that can be used to protect users from unwanted software. 

"For example, any app that wants to save its users from winding up on sites that lead to deceptive software could use our API to do precisely that."

Some example use cases are browsers (Chrome already uses this data), search providers, social networks, advertising networks, and more.

If you're in the MTL area, follow us on FB to get updates the next time around. https://www.facebook.com/popupchaimtl

I've been going to this place on a regular basis over the last 5 years. The owner and staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. It's a great place to host birthday parties. Food is great, prices are reasonable.
