Microsoft URLS Used By Background Services You Can-Not Block With HOSTS-File

Blocking or routing URL-addresses using the HOSTS-file is quite and easy practice to master,
Here are few of Microsoft’s URL-addresses, used by background-services,
That would not “pass-through” the standard-HOSTS file DNS resolution, which means, that
trying to “block” (127.0.0.* with no internal-server running, or 0.0.0.0) or redirect those will do little to none..

  1. www.msdn.com
  2. msdn.com
  3. www.msn.com
  4. msn.com
  5. go.microsoft.com
  6. msdn.microsoft.com
  7. office.microsoft.com
  8. microsoftupdate.microsoft.com
  9. wustats.microsoft.com
  10. support.microsoft.com
  11. www.microsoft.com
  12. microsoft.com
  13. update.microsoft.com
  14. download.microsoft.com
  15. microsoftupdate.com
  16. windowsupdate.com
  17. windowsupdate.microsoft.com

You can find the dnsapi.dll under this path: C:\Windows\System32\dnsapi.dll

icompile.eladkarako.com_microsoft_urls_used_by_background_services_you_can_not_block_with_hosts_file

You can still block those using this router trick: iCompile – Easy Router Ad-Block

Since it still uses the DNS-engine, just ignores any redirects from HOSTS.

	var ga = function() {

AdBlock Rules – Hide-Rules Addition

I maintain host.eladkarako.com which is a huge list of bad hostnames,
’till now there are the main adblock list with “block rule” such as:
||friendlyadvertisements.com^

BUT – I’ve figured I should probably also maintain hiding rules for each hostname,
it is relatively easy, and would benefit users which are getting visual elements such as links and such
which will still redirect the those bad domain, a, iframes, forms are the most targeted, while iframes would be blocked, and display an error message,
hiding rules, will also make them display:none which will help clean up the pages, even more :)

including href, src, onmousedown, onclick elements will help to benefit users keep their browser safe (less clickjacking!)

I’ve made a post in icompile.eladkarako.com instead of just adding another AdBlock list because
I wish this decision will get some more buzz through Google (the analytics shows this website gets 20,000 views a day so, in purely statistical manner someone would probably find this idea useful :) )

hiding rules looks like this

##[href*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]
##[src*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]
##[onmousedown*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]
##[onmouseup*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]
##[ontouchstart*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]
##[onclick*="friendlyadvertisements.com"]

while a-tags may sometimes wrap elements or even be styles themselves into a button (*ahammm* bad practice)
most of UI-frameworks usually uses mouse/touch related events quickly switching the href or opening window with the following “bad” hostname,
by hiding it – no clickjacking!

spread the idea,
if you are the owner of hosts list – get yourself an AdBlock list right away!
use my example at github.com/eladkarako/hosts.eladkarako.com!

AdBlock Advanced Selectors

Advanced selectors. Like A BOSS! 👔

💁 which are also applied to JavaScript‘s element.querySelector('....') and element.querySelectorAll('....'), and, naturally CSS3.

  • img[src^="https://example.com/ad"] (☞ “start with” match)

    will hide every image that starts with that string, (ad, ads, adware, ad_hello.. – included)

  • *[class*="ads-"] (☞ this is “middle match” or “everything match”)

    class attribute is a long space-separated string ⚋⚋, this will hide elements, which are having anything (partial match, but case-sensitive!) looking like this, it will hide:

    • <div class="toobar-ads-top foo">....</div>
    • <span class="vendorads-2 hello">....</span>
    • but also stuff like <div class="no-ads-at-all">...</div> ;)
  • a[href$="/bad_page.html"] (☞ “match end”)

    can help you hide links that are ending with this string, the long string can be something like this: https://example.com/pages/other_stuff/bad_page.html, and also http://cdn.example.com/just_another/bad_page.html.

see https://adblockplus.org/filter-cheatsheet and https://adblockplus.org/en/filters#elemhide_css

first test you use a correct syntax, open the developer-console and try to use document.querySelectorAll('img[src*="your_image.src"]') (or another selector of your choice that actually matches anything in your page

if this gets you an answer:
(full size)

You can go ahead and change it (slightly) to the AdBlock format which uses () instead of [],

meaning something like this #(id^="ads-container-")
or ||www.example.com#(class*="ads-")^
