Security researchers have warned that the exploit -- which takes advantage of known loopholes in SP2 -- could allow an attacker to run script code on a user's system via a Insolado May 25, 2005 2:31 PM Hola! but ist still ther in zipped files. Oddly enough this exact same set of circumstances happened to a coworker this week. http://pseudoblog.net/dso-exploit/dso-exploit-spybot-results.html
Thanks to all your information, I know I can safely ignore as I am up to date with all my updates etc. Thanks Leo September 18, 2004 7:58 PM No, that's probably not related to DSO exploit in anyway. Must I do this if I never use IE unless I am forced and I have Zone Alarm running constantly? by Leo A.
How can I know if I'm up-to-date? Got any advice on this one.....? You can read the thread there and make your own decisions. When it was not disabled on unpatched PC's, it was possible for malicious code to be run on your PC without your consent.
The first problem can be avoided by disabling the "Drag and drop or copy and paste files" option, but the new exploit doesn't rely on this particular bug Anne February 5, John Susi September 14, 2005 8:05 AM Dso canot be removed with spyware programs.the reason is that it comes with a Dll. You can e-mail or IM me and I will walk you through the process. Anyone knopw if I can put them thru the McAfee shredder with a hope of success Or will it hide them and let them operate matt November 22, 2005 3:14 AM
if you leave dso in your registry you may begin have a problem with your internet.Spybot will find dso but will not remove it.Dso may remain on a disk that you Dracarius September 14, 2004 9:44 PM Try this! You will find that 'DSO' exploit has been eliminated. I had thought an update meant they were working from the same basic material and were only tweaking it.
To fix the problem (which is the vulnerability, not getting rid of the exploit) I used a small program, which is a freebie, by the name DSO Stop 2. http://ask-leo.com/whats_a_dso_exploit_and_how_do_i_get_rid_of_it.html Select 'ignore product' in the left column. Create a new DWORD called 1004 by right clicking on the folder which contained this entry (normally "0"), select New, DWORD value. A further comment...
Internet options won't get rid of it. have a peek at these guys Leo September 5, 2004 10:00 PM As stated in the article, there is no need to do that. I thought the problem with the Spybot Search & Destroy program had been solved with a fix in one of its updates? This question has nothing to do with DSO.
Thanks DJ Kinney September 14, 2004 6:11 AM All this advice hinges on the fact that staying up-to-date with patches will solves the problem.

willl August 3, 2004 6:44 PM i can't get rid of it and my critical updates from microsoft wont load. The 2 detections they added to that category today, which is where the DSO detections are coming from are "Zonemap.Domains" and "Zonemap.Ranges". To clarify for subsequent readers: DSO *is* something you want to fix.

j. K-Lite Codec Pack Full2. These types of spyware can be difficult to remove, and if removal is successful, it often returns soon after. http://pseudoblog.net/dso-exploit/dso-exploit.html I have cleaned the registry once of the entires 1004 but can find no other entries as you describe.
If you've patched IE and are up to date with current Microsoft Patches, then you're safe, even if a DSO exploit is reported. I have chosen myself to click on each one of these (5 in my case) and then right click and I chose ''exclude this DETECTION from future scans''. Researchers have identified three separate, but related issues in IE. nat November 12, 2004 3:18 AM dale edens you said " Select 'ignore product' in the left column." but wont that jsut simply igbore the DSO?...
Go to the run command on your start menu and type in "regedit", then just follow the path to the source listed in the Spybot search results and delete it manually. If it annoys you to see it turn up in the scan, tell the scan to ignore it or modify the registry to correct the problem manually, but there is really It's because there is a sort of confusion even amongst some professionals.

jim September 9, 2004 6:11 PM Hi John, As Leo says, as long as you are fully patched there is no need to concern yourself with the DSO exploit. Leo February 17, 2005 8:29 PM No, and yes.
