I looked into my hosts file just now and saw this :
I don't remember putting that in and I don't like the look of it at all.
Any idea what it's about and how it got there?
I've learned that the entry will disable requests going to that domain name so it seems to be harmless unless I want to go there.
Even so. I don't remember entering it. Either my memory(human) is faulty or some process has gained root access to my
/etc/hosts file. Perhaps an install process? Even so it seems a rather odd thing for an installation process to do.
