I am running Windows 10. I noticed a few strange entries in my Windows 10 hosts file.       www.iana.org       iana.org 
I have several other entries that I placed in the file myself, but I do not recall placing the above entries (although my memory is terrible). What is the effect of having these entries? How can I determine if these were maliciously placed in my hosts file?
