    I believe that the betas have been discontinued with v1.1 upgrade due to be released at any time now.

    This is why :

    "The Net-Integration mirror download for SpyBot is temporarily unavailable. This is due to the fact that someone with a Russian IP address is purposely downloading Spybot at an unbelievable rate and adversly affecting the server. I didn't see this many download numbers from Ad-Aware when I was admin at Lavasoft. Because the requests are all coming from the same location and at such a high rate I believe it purposely designed to adversly affect SpyBot availability. The ISP assigned the IP Block has been contacted regarding this matter. In the meantime the IP is blocked from the server. (Not my choice unfortunately)

    We are now forced to implement something in an attempt to prevent the downloading of SpyBot S&D from our server unless you are on the SpyBot mirror page. I hate that we have to go to this. But it would appear we have no choice. SpyBot on the Net-Integration mirror should be available again later today. "

    Hey MTM, I guess the two things could be related but the betas are not served from NI. Also, the files served from the university seem to all be working except for the betas. But I'm only guessing.
