    Default Hosts file not locked down

    It appears that spybot does not completely lock out the hosts file, simply unchecking the read only box or using the attrib -r command on it will unlock it, no protection there, why isn't spybot completely locking it down from removing read-only other than the option in spybot? this is leaving people vulnerable to hosts hijacks by a simple command
