Since this morning the Adblock Plus plugin keeps crashing on all our PCs in our network. Our users get the following popup in IE several times a day.:
Adblock Plus Engine for Internet Explorer has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
In Event Viewer I see the following:
Faulting application name: AdblockPlusEngine.exe, version: 22.214.171.124, time stamp: 0x586bc0f5

This only affects Windows 10 PCs, all of which are set up identically. This does not seem to affect Windows 7 PCs. This started out of the blue. I first thought it might be related to Windows updates which were released yesterday, however, this also happens on PCs which have not been patched yet, hence it can't be related.
The crash always seems to happen when a network connection to some adblockplus.org domain is established. For example, this event was captured 1 second before ABP crashed. A connection to filter32.adblockplus.org was established in this case:

Is anyone else seeing this?
