You would also deserve it for using adblock plus, which is much weaker than ublock or brave shields (popups mainly) and allows some ads through. Google at least has some useful services (which I need for school) but using adblock plus over actual blockers is asking for trouble

Didn't use Adblock plus since it allows a part of ads by default.

Ublock origin, nano defender, inline install blocker, no coin and disable html 5 autoplay works 4 me. Adblock has been dodgy for a long time

I have been using adblock plus and have found it to be effective. I have not tried the other options mentioned in this post though.

Adblock Plus says the threat was minimal in the first place, and has removed the rewrite option:

Vulnerability? Fixed!

Potential vulnerability through the URL rewrite filter option

I used to use ABP a lot. I didn't switch personally due to any security issues overall, but I started to notice some sites getting around their ad block. I've had ublock since.
