    Yep all three of mine are hit and it isn't fun trying to track it all down and clean it up, especially since I've never been in a position to have to do so before.

    Shouldn't extensions like uMatrix stop the threat protectively. As the executable is downloaded from 3rd party site?
    I think uBlock (dynamic filtering) and no script should be able to mitigate this..
