Unimportant thing bothering me...

I have an old WinXP machine that I use for testing old crap on and to see if a file is "safe" or not, or to remember what XP looks like for menus and things to fix other PCs running XP (Yeah, I know).

Theres something on it that keeps clearing the HOSTS file. I use the standard one from winhelp2002.mvps.org with a few dozen other addresses.
All that remains is "127.0.0.1 localhost" (factory) after reboot. I'd only noticed today when I wanted to block some clickbait ads when I was too lazy to boot my laptop to surf. I see nothing on this PC that changes it and its REALLY bothering me.Theres nothing on the PC I care about, its just bothering me that the few things I've found with Google is not the infection I think this PC has. I mean, I dont see ANY infections, nor has Avast/Nod32/Kaspersky/Malware Bytes found anything.

I dont know WHEN this happened, so I doubt its a new 0day I picked up by magic. I see no unknown traffic in Wireshark so I have no clue what the purpose of it is, other than maybe one part of a packaged infection? Any ideas? Where should I look first?

Its driving me crazy...losing sleep over this. Could it just be a Windows error? File creation date is updated to current day every time I reboot
Thanks...
Also, heres a picture of Ed without his glasses.

Very interesting read.

Very interesting indeed. I wonder, did he really use usernames like "verax" and "anon118". Seems to me that people like the NSA would filter extra on names like that.... But I just might be a bit more paranoid after reading this article :-)

A follow up to the NSA and encryption discussion here a while back.
 
Fascinating story of the guy doing technical consulting for Snowden and the journalists before the story broke. Some very good observations on encrypted email and secure computing from Snowden who I hear knows a thing or two about that...
"Micah," the email read, "I'm a friend. I need to get information securely to Laura Poitras."

I think and hope it's the right community here to ask such question, i'm not a fan of bloated linux communities with hundreds of different answer, anyways:

I'm thinking about to tweak my Linux Debian Jessie a bit and what do you think about "noatime" and "norelatime" for mount points?

I have a fast HDD (no money for a SSD, so please, dont suggest) with 7k RPM's and i do work pretty much and often in VirtualMachines, so i already read a bit around google, and found out that many guys used "noatime", but this was a few years back...

What do you think? Is it even worth to change mount options or should i leave it default?

I'm not that kind of guy who wants to super-duper tweak his system, but a little bit is never wrong i think.

Thanks guys!

Must read. In my opinion of course.
As a journalist, Laura Poitras was the quiet mastermind behind the publication of Edward Snowden’s unprecedented NSA leak. As a filmmaker, her new movie <em>Citizenfour</em> makes clear she’s one of the most important directors working in documentary today. And when it comes to security technology, she’s a serious geek.

Alright, i'm more scared about that Poitras will die by an car accident, if she's going to release her second movie about Assange.. But then comes other part in my mind saying "What if citizenfour was released to confuse us all? What if the movie is just a fake?" and so on. Call me retarded or something, but i dont believe in everything i see. I loved and still love citizenfour, but scrutinize everything you see.
