Description

Environment

ABB 1.5.3 (and older)
iOS *
iPhone/iPad *

How to reproduce

With the release of ABB 1.5.3, the requests for antiadblockfilters and exceptionrules have gone up by 10% while the requests for notification.json has stayed persistent. Since the former two filter lists are opt-in (Settings->Ad Blocking), this indicates a problem with either download frequency or download requests. The requests for the former lists should not have gone up with a new release. Thus we'll need to find out what caused this rise in downloads.
As this can't be reproduced within the app, it can only be reproduced by our data team:

  1. Look up download statistics of antiadblockfilters, exceptionrules and notification.json before July 4th 2017 (release of ABB 1.5.3)
  2. Look up download statistics of antiadblockfilters, exceptionrules and notification.json after July 4th 2017 (release of ABB 1.5.3)

Observed behaviour

The download statistics for antiadblockfilters, exceptionrules went up by 10%

Expected behaviour

The download statistics for antiadblockfilters, exceptionrules should have remained

Additional information

The download frequency is dictated by each filter list's meta data:

Additionally there are only 3 changes within 1.5.3 which could have caused this.
