"ABP allows floods of adware on your computer."
Version: Adblock Plus for Mozilla Firefox 2.6.6
None, this program is a threat your security.
I had ABP as an extension on my Chrome browser and my system became inundated with ad malware. I disabled ABP and cleaned up the viruses, and then reactivated it and the malware immediately became a flood again. I don't know if that is ABP's purpose, to pose as a Trojan horse and allow your computer to get hit, but I am warning everyone about downloading this program. Comodo treats it as a major threat and so does Avast. Be careful. Just because its offered by Cnet, the onus is on you to get the facts about all the software offered in here.
Avoid this program unless you want to spend hours running boot level scans to rid your computer of viruses. I gave it a half star because Cnet requires at least some rating otherwise I wouldn't have given it anything.
