treewind Tech: Mudcat Trojan warnings (93* d) RE: Tech: Mudcat Trojan warnings 15 Jul 13

The huge hosts file may slow access down on legitimate sites, on the other hand for sites that contain a links to a domain listed in the hosts file, it's probably quicker to find the hosts entry than to do a DNS lookup for that domain.

As for the denial-of-service theory, Kaspersky does claim in a support forum somewhere that is a malware site. They don't say what malware is there, and nothing is proven, also attempting to go direct to that page on doesn't trigger a Kaspersky warning. It's the URL in that IFRAME link that it's objecting to. Maybe used to host malware.
The fact remains that the Mudcat site has had unauthorized content inserted, and that's bad.
