    Hey All

    I'm getting these Cache Poisoning Attack alerts, way too frequently! Like many others threads I have read in this forum, they are originating from my ISP. So I take it that these are false-positive alerts.

    I don't want to disable this function within ESET SS v5.0.95.0.

    What I want to know is:

    A) Is this a known bug specific to this version of ESET SS?
    B) Apart from diabling this function, is there a known workaround?
    C) Is there a Beta version/release that has fixed this issue?
    D) Is there any talk of a new stable release soon which addresses this?

    Looking forward to any replies. Thanx.

    - TZ!

    I am plagued by the same problem.

    My ISP has two DNS servers and both of the IP addresses give me that poisoning attack warning.
    The DNS-Flush tool seems at first to do its thing but after a manual reboot (it doesn't reboot automatically) the problem persists.
    A home made batch file with a similar procedure:

    @Echo on
    attrib -h -s -r hosts
    echo localhost>HOSTS
    attrib +r +h +s hosts
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
    ipconfig /flushdns
    netsh winsock reset all
    netsh int ip reset all
    shutdown -r -t 1
    del %0

    ..does reboot automatically at the end, but still doesn't fix it.

    I use the .95 version and can't find any infection after a scan...

    Is there a (good) reason why I wouldn't want to turn off this check? And how DO I turn it off??
