Hi, I was recently interested to see if there were any tracking cookies or malware or the like on my macbook pro (using safari). I went to a thread here:
Mac spyware/adware/malware problem - MacRumors Forums
where people suggested
% cat /private/etc/hosts
% cat /etc/hosts
...but did not suggest any followup courses of action in case there was a problem.
when I did this I saw an unusual entry (at the end) that I don't quite understand:
Is there another (easier?) way to determine if I have any tracking cookies or malware installed on my computer? My specific question actually arises from this general question.
Thanks for that quick reply which answers my general question. I hope that I also might get an answer to my specific question above as well. :)
Google is your friend. Here is the answer to your question.
osx - What is the relevance of "fe80::1%lo0 localhost" in /etc/hosts? - Super User
:Oops: :Blushing: ohhh that hurts... Sorry didn't I search that. I thought, naively, that that strange IP would certainly be specific to my machine.
Thanks many times,
