Tutorial???

Post by guitar-picker » Wed Apr 13, 2016 12:30 pm

I've used computers since the early 1980s but am not a programmer, and I find NoScript pretty much baffling. Is there a user-friendly tutorial somewhere that explains the what and why of all the mind-numbing settings and options to combat the seemingly endless number of security issues that this ingenious application theoretically allows an average PC user to manage? Without the tutorial, opening and trying to understand NoScript's Options is hopeless..similar to when a newbie opens and starts randomly poking around inside Regedit. I'm very concerned about privacy and security, and applications like NoScript look like wonderful solutions, but privacy and security issues seem to be exploding like a supernova, far faster than even computer programming geniuses can keep up with.

All I know of is these:

https://noscript.net/features
https://noscript.net/faq

If you want more than that... well, there's a request for better help documentation: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=17193

Ciao Giorgio, ciao anche al mitico Barbaz.
Non sapendo dove farlo esattamente (il forum e' molto grande), lo chiedo qui, trattandosi di tutorial.
Su tutte le sottopagine di https://noscript.net/ si trova il link https://noscript.net/gh/dr/tkgzitjfe97DUSVgh?MT pubblicizzato con la frase (tramite un invitante bottone verde):
"PC slowing
you down?
Free scan"
il link mi rimanda al sito http://www.uniblue.com/cm/deletedcmunits/speedupmypc/spdeletedcmunits/download/?aff=3257&x-at=noscriptt1 dove un altro bottone verde propone di scaricare il file speedupmypc.exe
Ho sottoposto a Virustotal il link a questo file (speedupmypc.exe dovrebbe provvedere alla pulizia del PC!) ma sembra invece che si tratti di un trojan.

Siccome il sito da cui si scarica questo file e' pubblicizzato sul sito noscript, sito che ha un'ottima reputazione, l'utente si sente sicuro e protetto. Forse dovreste rivedere la policy sui link pubblicitari che ospitate nel sito?
Grazie per la vostra risposta.

Since the site from which you download this file and 'advertised on the site noscript, site that has a great reputation, the user feels safe and secure. Perhaps you should review the policy on advertising links that are hosted on the site?
Thanks for your answer.

No, non è un trojan ma un falso positivo di alcuni antivirus che trattano i programmi di ottimizzazione come potenzialmente indesiderati perché spesso vengono installati "di default" insieme a freeware e ti ritrovi un programma che non avevi richiesto e che dopo un po' ti ricorda che il periodo di prova è finito senza sapere come. Ovviamente non è il caso di NoScript, che non installa nulla.

No, it's not a trojan but a false positive due to some antivirus engines flagging optimization/cleanup programs as potential unwanted ones because they're often side-installed by other freeware programs in non-obvious way, and user discover having a software they didn't ask for when they're nagged because the trial period is expired. This is obviously not NoScript's case, because it doesn't install anything.
