Enjoy!

Note: If you are using programs such as HostsMan, APK, uMatrix, AdBlock Plus, uBlock Origin, please consider switching from the hosts.txt file, to the individual classification files. These are both smaller, and more importantly, updated far more frequently (daily as opposed to monthly for hosts.txt). You can find the list of classification files on the hpHosts downloads page under "Individual Classifications".

hpHosts: New PUP classification

Previously covered by the EMD classification, I felt it time to migrate those distributing PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) to their own dedicated category (had been planning it for a while but never had time).

This has now been completed, and you can both download a new pup.txt file from the Downloads page, and have a look at them via either the Browse Database option, or by the individual sites pages.

Browse PUPs: https://hosts-file.net/?s=Browse&f=PUP
PUP Blocklist: https://hosts-file.net/pup.txt

If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by the forums.
