Extension name Site-specific ad blockers by FxFan
Extension versions affected <all versions>
Platforms affected <all platforms>
Block severity hard

Reason

The add-ons claim to be site-specific ad blockers. However, their main functionality (js/main.js) is active on various Google domains. It injects a frame into Google searches, something like hxxps://gum-service.azurewebsites.net/Page?context=hotel&lc=en&g=&i=1&nc=&vc=1 which will currently display ads (archived under hxxp://archive.is/8oD7d just in case things change later).

Extension IDs

I’ve reviewed the add-ons and confirmed they are collecting ancillary user data against our policies.
