Copy one from stock rom. You need root to access it. Factory reset won't affect the hosts file as its on the /system partition.

Download a stock rom. Unzip and copy its hosts file over your current one.
Or have you tried reinstalling the app? I'd expect it would be able to restore the original...

Factory reset only wipes the data partition. Hosts is in the system partition so factory resetting will have no effect.

If all else fails you can reflash your rom, or flash stock firmware via odin.

StockMod is a good one to use. Usually on page 1 of development section.

Unzip it, copy the hosts file from inside over the one on your device.
