This is one of the reasons why we do not advise running ComboFix on your own.
I don't remember the old version deleting my hosts file but this version sure did it.
Can an issue to the devs be created to have someone look at the hosts file deletion and ensure it's creating a backup and mentioning where it is or have it notify the user that their hosts file is xx size or contains xx entries and they should back it up before proceeding because it's going to be wiped.
I vote this to be included in the next combofix release because it's bad practice to wipe a hosts file in this manner.
It'll be painful while I rebuild my hosts file but now I know to include in my backup routines.
