I want to apologise to those few persons who downloaded the BearShare Hostiles update over the past 48 hours. I forgot to test the files before deploying to the public. There was an error in two of the files that causes BearShare to delete the contents and replace it with a minimal outdated (2005) list with a file size of around 4 KB. This usually occurs within 5 to 10 seconds of the BearShare window showing up on screen during startup.

The installers have been updated to fix the problem (207.177.64.0/255.255.192.0 had a double //)
You can either re-download the hostiles updater or re-install and fix the error yourself (within the db folder of the BearShare program folder.)
The super-light hostiles was unaffected.
The file sizes should be over 800 KB each or over 60 KB for the super-light hostiles. Definitely not 4 KB which is a clear sign of an error in the file.
There were also an extra two BOT addresses added in this fresh update compared to two days ago.
