HttpRetriever - throws java.net.UnknownHostException and does not fetch the site in KNIME 2.12.2 but works in 2.11.3

Hi,

trying to retrieve a side (http://feeds.reuters.com/reuters/businessNews) via the HttpRetriever fails and the following message is shown:

WARN  HttpRetriever        2:11       Error retrieving http://feeds.reuters.com/reuters/businessNews: Exception java.net.UnknownHostException: feeds.reuters.com for URL "http://feeds.reuters.com/reuters/businessNews": feeds.reuters.com

You can easily reproduce this error on  KNIME 2.12.2 (I have OS Win7 ) with the following WF:

'Table Creator -> HttpRetriever' - using the link http://feeds.reuters.com/reuters/businessNews as the only cell in the Table Creator node

Executing this WF under KNIME 2.12.2 results in the above WARN - Error and no result is fetched (the 'Result' column is empty '?')

But executing this WF under KNIME 2.11.3 works fine - no WAR and the Result is fetched!!!
