AdBlock and uBlocker are 'Fake'!

The team behind AdGuard, a real ad-block extension for browsers, reported this week that two popular ad blocking extensions, AdBlock and uBlocker are completely fake. The real purpose is “cookie stuffing,” which is used as an ad fraud scheme. The creators of the fake extensions stuff them with affiliate cookies, so that when the users of the extensions visit a relevant e-commerce site and make a purchase, the creators of the fake extensions get paid the affiliate commission for that purchase.
