    Hi,

    AG appears not to be able to block some requests.
    When defining a custom filter "*[whatever].com*" and then opening the link http://www.[whatever].com/?[veryverylongstring] the site is not blocked over here but requested and displayed.
    example (I replaced (in my tests, not just in this post!) r.ligatus.com by www.ibm.com):
    Code:
    Address:  [URL="http://<strong>www.ibm.com</strong>"]http://[B]www.ibm.com[/B][/URL]/?z=zUdwCig6f_pxHBC_0zFRA62CU-pLoXJ-zLqdsNT9IwZp5znXo8TTBotLz_Pm5crQLnx6csRdHWcLd6h5MdsIkFCl61d0kYzf0SDnHlDercta7oYSE1bFcKPvg3DevG887fyDmUdvjJ0yfRKw_4L6dmOzQLVTPKD0Hl1m
    Time: 12/21/2014 14:27:00
    Status: Request blocked
    Request details:
    
    The request was blocked by the following filtering rule:
    
    *ibm.com*
    but
    Code:
    Address: http://www.ibm.com/us/en/
    Time: 12/21/2014 14:27:01
    Status: The page has been filtered
    Request details:
    
    The request was sent from the following web page:
    http://www.ibm.com/
    
    New element hiding rules have been added to the page
    Popup blocking code has been added to the page
    
    The following elements have been removed from the page:
    
    
    <script src='http://www.ibm.com/resources/ecm/homepage-custom.js' type='text/javascript'> (*.ibm.com*)
    [lotsastuffsnipped]
    <script src='//www.ibm.com/common/stats/stats.js' type='text/javascript'> (*.ibm.com*)
    
    Bytes received: 18381
    Bytes sent: 391
    So even though AG says to have blocked it it obviously hasn't. How probable is it that this is a malware redirecting to any URL just blocked (take adguard.com if you like)?


    edit: @avatar: W7x64 test system available (on schedule!) for you to "see and believe" :)

    edit2: BTW: same /w production and beta

    I guess this is the reason of the problem and I think it's a bad design decision:

    At least I liked to have a choice/setting.

    Disagree.

    There're two ways you can have ad URL be opened in the main window.

    1. If you have clicked the banner. Obviously you want to see what is after this banner and blocking request in this case is wrong.

    2. If you are dealing with some kind of clickunder ads. For this case there're $popup rules which will block all requests.

    My bad, you're right.
    I missed the point where you're not a man driving a putinesque Hummer but are a tiny whiny girl driving a merkelesque Mercedes :p

    edit: If only I could find a link/picture to/of the new(?) ZIL I saw lately. Looked like a tank /w windows. I way rather referred a Russian to such a great car than to a Hummer.

    Haha, Hummer is for girls. If these politicians won't stop this madness I'd prefer Gaz Tigr:

    And a bunker somewhere in Siberia
