I have run Spybot on XP Pro and it tells me I have 6 entries of DSO Exploit

I have "fixed" the problem but when I do another scan DSO exploit is still there

How can I get rid of it completely please?

Thanks

configure spybot to ignore them, they are harmless and is a bug in spybot, or why not get the beta version of spybot which doesn't have this problem.

Get the beta version of SpyBot S&D.

The latest Beta Release of SpyBot (1.3.1) now gets rid of the DSO exploits.

To get this beta version open SpyBot in the Advanced mode. Open the Settings section then click "settings". Scroll down to "Web Update" then check "Display available beta versions" Then search for updates. It will appear as an update.

I have done as you suggest but no updates are found

Have I misread something?

if it's not there then you probably already have it, check the version number.

I have version 1.3 and the DSO Exploit came up as being present

I have also "upgraded" to the Beta version and although the search engine appears to find more cookies, the DSO Exploit find still comes up !!

The "DSO" exploits are an old IE vulnerability that is no longer a threat on a
"patched" machine, if you regularly visit Windows Update, you may safe add
this detection to the Ignore List in SpyBot.

Can you configure spybot to ignore DSO Exploit without converting to advanced mode? If so how/where?
