In the Windows operating system, there is something called the "Hosts File". This is a file that is used to override the normal destinations of network communication, e.g. where your server goes when you type "http://www.google.com" in it. A malicious attacker can use this functionality to silently and unnoticeably redirect the user to a server owned by himself, instead of e.g. the bank server that the user thinks he is going to, and thus steal credit card numbers, social security numbers or any other information of value from the unsuspecting user.
Because of these risks, it is quite good to keep track of all modifications and new entries in the Windows hosts file. All-Seeing Eye immediately notifies you of any added, modified or removed hosts file entries in your computer, to enable you to quickly and efficiantly respond to any such attack.
