Watch out for phishing opportunities by validating entries
Authored by: PCheese on Apr 27, '10 02:07:15PM

If you choose to automate this, you should seriously consider validating the entries in the file that is being downloaded. If MVPs.org is ever compromised, it would be easy for attackers to add an entry that redirects, say, your bank's website to their phishing page. It's probably sufficient to discard any entries that do not point to 127.0.0.1.
