    Adblock can do more than just block advertisements. It can block content from any website or any list of websites. Malware, being hosted on a finite number of sites around the web, is therefore blockable.

    Combine AdBlock with the list of known malware hosting sites at MalwareDomains for a first line of defence against malware that updates itself.

    If you?ve never used AdBlock before don?t worry: it?s easy to use and currently available for Firefox, Chrome and even Safari.
