Detects a address redirection in the hosts file.


HostRedirect:[hostname],<ip address>,<host parameters>,<advanced build parameters>




  1. The first parameter specifies the host this deals with, which may include wildcards.
  2. If the second parameter is specified, it will find the redirection only if it points to the specified IP.
  3. The third parameter allows you to remove redirections pointing to a local address by specifying killlocal; since blocking malware sites by redirecting them to a local address is quite common, hosts pointing local would otherwise not be detected.
  4. Advanced build parameters toggle on which Spybot-S&D versions a command is executed.
