StevenBlack's Hosts extensions\social\hosts is detected as false positive Win32/Qhost trojan

According to my information, the detection is correct, as the file restricts access to popular websites, what most people would evaluate as an unwanted behavior.

A workaround could be excluding hosts file from scanning and switching HIPS to Smart mode so that you are prompted for an action if malware attempts to modify the file.
