    Default Aldelphia DL in beta.sbi wrongly flags legit bookmarks

    The latest beta.sbi (2006-13-10)

    Flags three of my bookmarks under Adelphia DL:

    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/8scripts.htm
    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/
    http://users.adelphia.net/~suzshook/10tips.htm

    Suz is a highly respected and experienced user of Paint Shop Pro and these are bookmarks to her pages. They are perfectly legitimate and do not offer/download anything malicious, to the contrary she offers useful tips and scripts for paint shop pro users.

    I rank this as a FP, whatever Adelphia DL is supposed to be.

    It may be my system and/or my ISP, but I am getting "The page cannot be displayed" when I try to access your three (3) references:

    Zenobia, you're right!!!

    I can't get to users.adelphia.net because it is in my HOSTS file. The entry in my HOSTS file was added by Spybot with the 2006-10-13 updates. There are three (3) entries containing "adelphia.net" among the 100 entries added to Spybot's HOSTS file with the 2006-10-13 updates:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • adelphia.net

    *************

    ps: Added with edit.

    The same three (3) sites were added to the restricted zone by Spybot's immunization process with the 2006-10-13 update:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • adelphia.net

    I don't use Spybot Hosts file (I use mvps.org hosts file); so the sites remain accessible to me.
    I had not noticed that users.adelphia.net had been added to restricted site:

    My question is why??

    Unhappy Just chatted online with ADELPHIA and they will call.

    This is a big problem for millions of adelphia users. As most who use spybot will not know they have 3 new entries in their restricted zones preventing the site from working properly!!

    Adelphia is looking into why they have been black listed.

    thanks for reporting,
    it is a false positive with our beta detections, unfortunately this also went into the spybot hostsfile
    product will be fixed and renamed with next update

    so if someone added the spybot hostsfile and immunization with the latest update, he should check if adelphia.net is blocked within the hosts file and remove it from there

    I dont have host files checked but adelphia was put in my restricted zone anyway. I cant even access my mail or helpfiles. The only thing listed in my host files says local. Should I remove that? Im so lost.

    If you want to remove the Restricted Zone entries for the following entries:
    • users.adelphia.net
    • www.adelphia.net
    • *.adelphia.net

    Go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet options... > Security tab > click on Restricted Sites > click the Sites button > in the Web sites listing > scroll down to one of the entries > highlight it > click the Remove button. Highlight the second entry > click the Remove button, etc. When you are done, click OK,OK.
