Fixes Bugs.

If 1.01's been out for a week I may already be using it. Downloaded a copy on Monday.

Fixed bugs that aren't in IE as IE doesn't support dodgy IDN ideas

Shame the bug fix list is not a full one. I reported a bug to them once and they denied it was a bug But I bet they had to fix it in the end.

I think you're fine. Since it wasn't one I'd come across, I just looked it up and the following post is a good summary...

"DSO-Exploit was a security issue in Internet Explorer, Outlook
and Outlook Express. Microsoft has already corrected this issue
with security updates, so with current Windows updates and
patches installed, it will no longer be a threat to your system.


Spybot-S&D will still detect the DSO-Exploit, but instead of
fixing it for good, it will unfortunately again set an invalid value.
Therefore it will again be found with every scan.
This little "bug in Spybot-S&D" has already been repaired and the
respective fix will soon be available as a program update. "

So, as long as you're not using a very old version of IE etc, you should be safe

Tim

Thanks Tim! I am paranoid after I got a Trojan Virus half way through a big wedding order. I run checks every day.
Kind Regards
