Hosts File Letter in June 08 Magazine Helproom

  first500 22:06 26 Apr 2008

The answer to the question in this month's mag "Browser Hijacked" said that the hosts file should end with the line " localhost". Anything after that can be deleted.

My hosts file continues with:
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy
# This list is Copyright 2000-2008 Safer Networking Limited click here
etc etc

The answer recommended running Spybot, but did not mention that it would add to the hosts file a long list of entries noting "nasty" sites.

So my question is: Is this addition for real, or has the file been hijacked by a virus that is using the name of Spybot to make you think that the additions are ok?
