Accessing VPN

Discovered this great free VPN service called spotflux – it is so easy to use. On public networks, every website you visit can be tracked – VPN tunnels your traffic to spotflux servers. Though – the price you pay is having ads getting injected into unsecured html (http).

For example, there is a black rectangle. For me, it looks like this (with adblock enabled):



Inspecting the html code, it turns out this is just a div container:

htmlI notice that this inserts a <div> with randomized id. In mine, it is id=”azk91987″. Since this <div> is top level, if you tried blocking it, you’d either block just that instance (with that id) or all <div>’s (which isn’t what you want).

I noticed that the style is consistent though;

<div style=”position: fixed; z-index: 9999; bottom: 0px; width: 100%;”>

So I added a custom rule to adblock in chrome:

blockThis fixed it!

That’s all folks.
