I received this information from someone:
From: Jack Gulley
This morning I downloaded the CWShredder.exe version 2.11 file directly from the InterMute web site and ran a Scan on my system. It reported the following infections:
I think NOT!
CWShredder v1.59.1 runs clean without any detection on the same system.
I then removed my HOSTS file and ran a CWShredder v2.11 Scan again, and it showed no infections.
Sounds like there is still a problem with "false positives" because of valid HOSTS file entries.
My HOSTS file is dated 8-4-2003 when I last removed an entry from it, and is otherwise much older than that. A compare with a CD-R backup copy made a year ago shows no changes to my file. So there is no way any recent version of CWS could have altered my HOSTS file. Period.
However, I then ran CWShredder v2.11 in FIX mode.
It reported that if "fixed" the above listed infections.
Hum... Nothing showed up in the Recycle Bin.
Oops.. My 386K HOSTS file is now 677K in size.
15 blank lines have been added between every existing line including between the comments at the start of the file. Not good. It is hard to read now and wastes memory when loaded!
And what is this??? CWShredder v2.11 at the same exact time created a HOSTS.BAK at 508K size with "only" seven blank lines between each original entry line. Go figure that game plan, of going from zero to 7 to 15 blank lines while destroying the original?
Ooooh S**T.. There are a lot of entries missing from my now over bloated HOST file.
Entries like: 0.0.0.0 ad.yahoo.com
All YAHOO.COM entries are gone but not those like ad.img.yahoo.co.kr
And a lot of others.
Attitude = ON
Restore HOSTS file from CD-R
Add polite warning about CWShredder v2.11 to web page. http://users.adelphia.net/~jgulley/me/index.html#CWShredder
