At the same time why does ESET allows soft security for gamers > this code is so prevalent. You would think it would be the reverse. Fully understanding that the software must be configurable to different expectations.

Unfortunately, while publishing the URL might help a few people who use such information for legitimate purposes like blocklists, the address might be used or accessed by more people who do not understand the consequences of visiting.  If the site receives too much unusual traffic, the malware operator might choose to take actions against such visitors which could harm their computers.

Keeping in mind that this is a very prevalent piece of malware, I would be surprised if the URL was not already included in most published blocklists, anyway.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky
