Have they now sorted out DSO Exploit?

Since I last updated Spybot it has not found DSO Exploit once in the last four times its been run.

Good boys!

The post titled 'Official and Unofficial "Fixes"' in the above thread on the Spybot site makes it clear that 1.3.1TX is unauthorised and unsupported and that it was withdrawn. When referring to this version and other betas the post says, "We strongly advise you not to use these versions". The latest fully-released version is still 1.3 and the latest beta is 1.4.2. The thread gives instructions for installing the latter.

1.3.1TX works OK for me and has done for about 4 months and it accepts updated definitions from the Spybot website.

Other than new definitions, what 'support' would you need anyway?

Please don`t ask how I got it, but I`ve got
1.4b2. I think it downloaded itself from a n indicator here. Not worried too much though

This poblem was fixed by a very recent update of Spybot 1.3. Download latest update details of fix can be viewed.

If you are happy, fair enough. However, it might not work for everyone. The developer is quoted in one post in another thread as saying that TX mght cause problems with some updates. Who knows what support you would need? I'm just quoting the Spybot forum.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
