How to circumvent Anti-Adblock

Postby Reciprocity » Tue Sep 08, 2015 7:55 pm

So not knowing shit about programming I've been tracking some of the various scripts and the likes to try and find a generic script where you'd simply enter the url of the site and marvel as the anti-adblock messages dissappeared. So far I haven't found even 1 script that would work on so I'm hoping somebody out there could help me out (along with many others).

I believe that in general this cannot be done, as a consequence of the undecidability of the halting problem (which is also why you can't make absolutely sure that any non-trivial application has no vulnerabilities, or that any non-trivial computer system can't get infected by malware).

For something specific to Javascript, I know that lots of on-page functionality can be hidden away in a closure, so that instead of disabling a particular function, you'd need to do something expensive like repeatedly crawling the DOM for certain common characteristics of anti-Adblock tactics if you wanted a general script.

With that said, Reek's Anti-Adblock Killer works quite well in conjunction with the ABP subscription of the same name, for specific sites that use specific anti-Adblock methods that can't be defeated with just blocking and hiding rules: [Redacted]

TL;DR: It's a cat-and-mouse game and there's nothing we can do about it.

There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

Thanks both of you!
The first script worked perfectly so I didn't feel the need to implement the other :)
