plusnet.tt.omtrdc.net

Why does community.plus.net try to access plusnet.tt.omtrdc.net - its blacklisted by virtually every spam blocking site.

Is this why I get a screenful of stuff about cookies at the bottom of every page?

Is it related to cdn.tt.omtrdc.net?

or to www.googletagmanager.com?

At least uBlock Origin seems to be doing its job.

Re: plusnet.tt.omtrdc.net

I am using a computer with the Ubuntu operating system and the Firefox Browser. I have a Malwarebytes add on for the browser and these items are listed as having been blocked. I would like to know what is going on?

Hope you are not paying money for malwarebytes on Linux.

Try "ublock origin" as an addon and use DuckDuckGo as a search engine.

Strongly suggest you also add the DuckDuckGo plugin.

Bit confused here. Exactly what do you not understand?

Could be, I suppose, @VileReynard , but I don't get that message up on either my W7 or Linux machine - both running current FF versions and uBlock - although it is listed in blocked elements.

Re: plusnet.tt.omtrdc.net

I use Malwarebytes on my Windows10 laptop.

Recently I installed Ubuntu20.04 on my 5 year old PC and both firefox and google chrome synchronised and installed the Malwarebytes add on. I believe these are not malicious and may reduce the number of adverts targeted to me.

I also have a Facebook container on Firefox.

In the past I have had anti virus failures on Windows 7. Malwarebytes is the only program that removed the nasty stuff. That's why I use it with Windows.

Re: plusnet.tt.omtrdc.net

@johnmilbank Malwarebytes is in no way malicious, I think @VileReynard was just saying there is little point in paying for the 'Professional' version unless you need it, which I agree with.

As to your original query, that is a known tracker, and I suspect Firefox itself may block it if the default behaviour on there is not modified, but can't be sure, as uBlock has it in its blocklist anyway.
