Does Spywareblaster /block/detect/fend off Red Sheriff?
How pesky is this?

Welcome to Wilders Security Forum!! :)
I'm sure Javacool will be along soon to either confirm or amend my information... SpywareBlaster blocks the execution (and download) of known ActiveX controls, but does not manage or control Java applets run from within your browser session, which is where Red Sheriff lives.
For more information on the Red Sherriff spyware, and ways of blocking it, see the SpywareInfo Forum thread linked below:

The link LowWaterMark gave you provides excellent information on how to block Red Sheriff.
SpywareBlaster currently does not have the functionality to do so - but it is in consideration for a future release. :)

Hope Javacool does block Red Sheriff down the road.
