[...] The author has a history of doing shady things, such as messing with AdBlock filters to whitelist ads on his own website. But what is even more serious is the fact that the author advertises on his website malware. Especially to Windows users. Every time NoScript updates itself, the users are shown the homepage of the extension.
If you’re a Linux user, change your browser’s user-agent to Windows in order to investigate. See that “PC slowing down?” banner? It’s hard coded by the author, who gets paid with every successful installation of malware crafted by UniBlue. Just look at the source how the banner is generated. It randomizes itself every time you refresh the browser in order to get away from Adblockers. This dogshit is something even ad networks would be proud of.
The author knows well what he is linking to and has made a great effort to obscure the code and created a mechanism to bypass Adblock.

Les termes du billet son exagérés mais oui, il y a un problème de fond. :- Et on n'a pas d'alternatives à NoScript (uMatrix est laaaaaargement plus complexe et prise de tête et n'offre pas totalement les mêmes fonctionnalités).
