I alway use this host file from this website....http://msmvps.com/blogs/hostsnews/default.aspx.

So far KIS/Pure2 have not detect it as trojan. Today, Pure 3 detected it as Trojan.Win32.Host2.gen.

Anyone have this problem.

I'm having this problem as well, and have added the mvps HOST file to the exclusion list, as well as the downloaded files it was installed from. I had to DISABLE KIS, because it disinfected all of the files without ASKING first, and adding the files to the exclusion list by right clicking on them in the detection list was NOT an option! What the heck??? I had to manually add all files to the exclusion list....PITA, and bad, bad behavior for KIS!

another way around till Kaspersky solves the problem :

Settings --> Threats & Exclusions --> Exclusions --> Settings --> Add --> Select file or Folder --> C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\

I am glad it seemed to fix your problem but that entry is not found in the latest mvp host file so it is unlikely that is the root cause.
