Default Adblock Plus Security risk

There is a way to use adblocks ability to identify itself to harm you. It appears that the exploit uses Java (go figure) to install programs and other things.

If you are running PaleMoon, the forked version does not count. The same goes to those of you who use the android version, which they have... for better terms changed.

THIS IS FALSE

I just caught their beta. Lets hope that it works.

It appears to be no longer supported. Admuncher is officially abandonware. - Security | DSLReports Forums

The site is up, but no changes in development. I wouldnt call that unsafe, but I wouldnt call it safe either.

Well, lets see...
One for Firefox
And this is still safe for IE...

That should help until the developers behind ABP get things together.
Please uninstall admuncher before installing the above.
