I think the new #zombieload exploit is yet another reason why you NEED to be using #adblock (ideally #ublockorigin). The main exploit vector is rogue #Javascript, coming from ad servers.

That'd be nice if it were true, but you can't trust ANY JS, not just ads delivered through JS. Even something as benign as those badges boasting that a site conforms to some set of security standards has been detected serving up TWO keyloggers.
