    Well maybe not exactly the correct place on Wilders for this, but I think it's close...

    I'm not sure if anyone has seen this site before, really nice Hosts file list;

    I think even if you're using several browser addons, Adblock, NoScript, etc., this list certainly looks like a nice addition... ;)

    spybot search and destroy has an immunize function that adds a huge block list to your hosts file. also modifies firefox to block images and popups that are infected.

    maybe overkill though.
