you'll find the ads tend to reflect what you look for most.

if i have been looking at furniture, i get furniture ads...

follow the train of thought.

There are no ads, on any of our providers, that use assets from, or link to the domain indicated in that warning (just spend 30 minutes running searches).

However, a great many anti-malware systems never (or rarely) update blocked domains once an issue is corrected. It could be a false alarm.


But more importantly, do some research on your ISP. We're seeing an increasing amount of complaints that some regional ISPs are using deep-packet inspection to insert their own banner ads into websites you use.

deep-packet inspection to insert
their own banner ads into websites you use.


does that mean there is no choice and the ads have by default inseted themselves in between packet data?
and if so that brings the "net" onto every local computer, by default

am i correct that to be able to insert adds at that level a company could easly track and trace the entire web from user data?

the money revenue from the advertising allows deep packet insertion
lol

please tell me i have got this wrong......

Not so well said.


What is "deep-packet inspection"? Do you have a clue as to what you are talking about?

Either they are inspecting your packets or they are not, there is no such thing as "deep-packet inspection". If the MSM says otherwise they are just as clueless.

Ever use SNORT or Wireshark? If you have not I suggest you do......if only to monitor your persona network traffic.

._ snort..that is something like a decade old combo...and i do realize that such talk beyond the constructive level of interaction is not allowed here so for obvious reasons ill simply lol or lulz as to the snort.

As for deep packet, well assuming you work or have direct access to isp hubs then what i replied to was exactly what the person i quote mentioned. I am no super geek uber cyber trooper who has no lifez. But then again such topics are anything but and avoided at all costs especially on a site that is way above visited by thousands. So in closing, there are those who assume and there are those who know and there are those who refuse to be both, simply do not assume is the key word here.

I get advertisements for food and books. Yes I'm a fatty. I've never had anything go off on this website before. Hmm. Strange.

How does one prevent "deep pocket inspection"?
Is there a method on the web browser?

Actually, there is.

Normal "packet inspection" simply catalogs the sites you see and the people with whom you exchange email.

"Deep packet inspection" involves taking that step further by parsing the TCP/IP packets to determine actual content. Once that's determined, a JavaScript tag (in this case) can be exchanged on the fly with one of their own as the ISP sends you the HTML of the web page.
