It may be due to the fact that adwares/malwares/virus may take advantage of the hosts file entry and prevent users from downloading the windows update fix pacs from and also can be made redirected to some evil IP on the internet which hosts bad programs and the windows update program in the system downloads them thinking that it is a genuine windows update fixpacs and executes it which further harms the system and spreads the virus.
