    is this adware introduced by umbraco?

    umbraco 8 introduces adware ?

    sinds V8 suddenly a syle tag is added full of adware, is somebody aware of this? this didn't happen on V7

    enter image description here

    Hi Ketels.

    I dont think it has anything to do with Umbraco.

    It could come from one of your links or scripts or browser plugins?

    I'd say with 99% certainty that, that will not be coming from any umbraco code

    Could be from a rogue package you've installed, a browser extension, a script you've loaded, or adware on your PC

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I was concerned that it was connected with the new setup from umbraco V8. but your answers lead me to the real reason.

    this behaviour is indeed caused by a browser extension !?

    it is caused by the extension opera ad-blocker. after removal of this add-on, the extra css tag disappeared.

    Also to note it doesn't look like it was adding adware, but in fact hiding it. Which makes sense seeming its an adblocker extension that is adding this code.

    So it's looking for any elements on the page which looks like an ad (it seems to determine this from urls in element attributes) and then hides them.

    So you can probably, safely re-add the extension.
