Okay first of all I will state that I'm completely new to this forum. That being said I'm not sure if what I'm asking is a violation of your policies. I'm hoping though that with a name like Black Hat my question will be accepted and hopefully answered. I have several friends who have already told me that they will accept a program that would modify the Hosts file that redirects all advertising on all websites to my advertising. So I have accounts on several affiliate websites. What I want to be able to do is modify my friends hosts files so when ever they go on a website that displays ads the ads that get displayed will be to my affiliate accounts. Can someone please tell me how I would go about doing such a thing. PS: I know it sounds like a virus. And in all purposes it is a virus. However I see absolutely nothing wrong with it if the people using my program consent to it.
