Update.

The problem appears to only affect systems with the pae kernel - I have another machine that doesn't have that kernel - and the scan works fine.

The scan freeze doesn't always freeze the system - it just prevents shutdown sometimes. I am typing this after scan freeze.

After the scan freeze both cmdagent and cmgdaemon are still running.

I have tried excluding usr/src to avoid the kernel headers - the scan proceeds further, but then froze at usr/share/launchpad

One more point - diagnostics finds no problems.

Further update - this seems strange, but if I exclude /usr the full system scan will run successfully. If I then remove the exclusion I can scan the folder /usr without problem!?

Hi:

The issue is still there with comodo linux and linux mint 13. Comodo shows file system filter driver not loaded and when click to fix it it is unable to do that and give the kernel module "redirts.ko" appropriate for your current kernel version does not exist. Please run /opt/comodo/post_setup.sh to install it. Then run  /etc./init.d/cmdavd restart command to restart cmdvd service.

I tried it but after rebooting it goes back to this error and it does not fix the issue.

Anyway can someone give me a list of problem free linux antiviruses that work good on mint 13? Thanks in advance.

CAVL is the only free real time AV for linux that I know of. ESET may also do one (but it costs).

There are plenty of on-demand virus scanners - clamtk (in  repo), bitdefender (good gui - can be added to repo), avast (good gui - needs a slight tweak to get it working - see avast forum), avg (command line only I think).

The run /opt/comodo/post_setup.sh  worked OK on ubuntu 12.04 - I did have to run it with sudo I think.

You also have to ask yourself why you would need a real time av on a linux desktop box at present I think. The in-the-wild threat is still trivial (though that may change in future).

Whilst I very much applaud comodo for taking the lead on this, even they are only looking for windows platform malware with CAVL at present I believe.

On my old e4062 box I have taken the view that the performance hit is too great to be justified by the minor security improvement, and uninstalled CAVL.

I can get 'lighter' partial real-time protection using trafficlight, fireclam, and noscript add-ons in firefox, backed up by a weekly system scan.

I only install from the repo as a rule, so with the browser and downloads fairly well protected, and using a limited rights account other than for update, I find it hard to see how any malware will get in (and scans have never found any).

Hi again:
Well for me to keep comodo running correctly after running the command, means that I have to leave the pc on and not shutting or rebooting it down for the night and reboot or turn it on the next day.

Therefore my question is this.Is it ok for me to leave the pc on and just put it to sleep mode (using the sleep mode button on keyboard) at night and then waking it up the next day when I want to use it?

Will the pc overheat or warm-up or its lifespan reduce if it is left in sleep mode when not needed rather then shutting it down and turning it on the next day?

Anyone know if it is safe to do sleep mode? Thanks in advance.

Hello here,

I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

For installing CAV on it, the command is (in the terminal) :  sudo bash /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh and not sudo sh /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh  !!

Works perfectly.

Warmly,

Hello,

  I want to complain and suggest something:

On Comodo's website, when you go to CAVL, it says its compatible to a lot of Linux Distro. But when you click download, you always download .RPM wich is not compatible to most Linux users, specially because Ubuntu is the most used distro, and is the Linux Newbies (like my self) favorite distro.

Most Ubuntu users willl never find the Ubuntu version to download (only in the forum). There should be all the links in the product site to download, and not only with .RPM and .DEB names. It you say the name of the Linux Distro that it is compatible (like Ubuntu users,download this. Fedora users download this).

Or a combo box, where the user select the distro, then starts the download process.

Or for the furutre, make it available on Ubuntu App Store (or whatever is the official name).

Thanks a lot, and keep up the excelent work making the internet safer.

Best Regards,
    Fred

newbie here
i'm also a linuxt mint 13 user and having problems with installing cavl
it seems that cmdavd, load_cmgdaemon.sh, and load_cmdagent.sh doesn't recognize linux mint 13 as debian or ubuntu based distritribution from the lines

case $OS in
SUSE)
   . /etc/rc.status
   ;;
Debian|Ubuntu)
   . /lib/lsb/init-functions
   ;;
SliTaz)
   ;;
*)
   . /etc/init.d/functions
   ;;

the info from $OS is taken from /etc/issue where linux mint 13's is

Linux Mint 13 Maya \n \l

i'll try to change Debian|Ubuntu) to Debian|Ubuntu|Mint) and post later if it works

sorry for my english

Happy new year!

my first try failed

i don't know "or" for the line Debian|Ubuntu|Mint)

so i just changed the line

SliTaz)
   ;;
*)
   . /etc/init.d/functions
   ;;
esac

to

SliTaz)
   ;;
*)
   . /lib/lsb/init-functions
   ;;
esac

for
/etc/init.d/cmdavd
/opt/COMODO/load_cav.sh
/opt/COMODO/load_cmdagent.sh
/opt/COMODO/load_cmdaemon.sh

also change the line for /opt/COMODO/load_cmdaemon.sh

    SliTaz)
        cd $CHGDIR
        $PROG_NAME
        ;;
    *)
        cd $CHGDIR
        daemon $PROG_NAME
        ;;
    esac

to

    SliTaz)
        cd $CHGDIR
        $PROG_NAME
        ;;
    *)
        #cd $CHGDIR
        #daemon $PROG_NAME
        start-stop-daemon --start --chdir $CHGDIR --exec $PROG_NAME
        ;;
    esac

hope this help
this is just a work around though because it seems the some of the code in the script still doesn't recognize linux mint as debian or ubuntu base

Hi s3k9, i tried Your way in linux Mint 13 Maya (with MATE). It works fine till rebooting, then everything is going to previous state. Work around is ok but it's not making Comodo work as it should...

Hi Fred,

Thanks for your good suggestion. I agree that to give download links for different Linux distributions is better than just give rpm and deb package to let customer to decide which is to be installed. I've conveyed the idea to related guy, the change will come soon.

Thanks,
Yanghua

Hi Seany007,

12.04 is a LTS version QA tested CAVL on it. You know 12.10 is not a LTS version, but I think it is similar with 12.04, so if you are willing to install CAVL on 12.10, try it!

Thanks,
Yanghua


I know it support Ubuntu version 12.04 but does it support Ubuntu version 12.10? Thanks.
