Spybot S&D help - DSO Exploit

  Sweet Paramania 20:16 27 Jan 2005

Have used Spybot S&D v1.3 and keep getting the DSO exploit (5 entries). After I repair and reboot, or rerun the program (can't remeber which) it reappears.

Think I read somewhere that it was a Windows XP security hole - could XP be resetting the reg entries automatically. If so why hasn't MS launched an update to stop this? (I'm up to date on updates btw)

The problem is with Spybot not MS. There is a well documented bug in Spybot 1.3

Upgrade to 1.4 and the DSO Expoilts will disappear.

Well I've just spent a day cleaning all sorts of cr*p/adware/spyware/malware/hijackers etc from my son's pc and another day wasted trying to get rid of a "bug" in "spybot" I should have checked here sooner!!!!!!!!!

"Upgrade to 1.4"

Where from?? Spybot homepage is still only showing version 1.3.

Unfortunately I`ve got Spybot S&E 1.4B2 and it`s done nothing to remove the problem.

I cannot point you to the place I got it from, there are others better qualified, but I`ve got the same question as you. How does one get rid of this itch? Please don`t say scratch it....:-))

It is still a beta but I have been running it for a while and no longer get the DSO Exploit error.

Get spybotsd131tx.exe from click here and use it to update your Spybot. The DSO Exploit bug will then be gone.
