What Does it Do?

Hostname Obfuscation - Hostnames are obfuscated consistently troughout all files, much like the IP Address functionality. Based on the system's hostname, if the hostname for the system in question is an FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), all hostnames on that domain are obfuscated. If the hostname is NOT an FQDN, then all examples of that hostname itself are obfuscated.
