Block Fake Windows Patch Websites

Recommended Posts

This is a list of fake Windows patch websites and other suspicious websites that I collected over some time. The list was derived when I used to use Sygate Personal Firewall.

 

They can be blocked in web browsers, and the hosts file. Blocking these websites "may" prevent some unsolicited pop-ups, and "may" prevent some malware.
