LOL. Your plan comes unstuck if YOU have to have the first move in the first game.

actually colours don't matter..
you can play against one in one room and the other in the other room. As long as you then play one's move against the other, colours don't matter.

thanks

That was a late response.

Only took you a year and-a-half :P

As a former Tutor & top player, You are incorrect. Move first, Move second. Doesn't matter.

I loved chess from 2004-2007. Now I hate it and fallen in love with Comodo.

Think again, grasshopper. You have two games, A and B, and in each game you have Opponent A and Opponent B.

Melih's premise is based around Opponent A in game A making the opening move. Melih would then replicate this as the opening move in game B. Opponent B would then make his move in game B. Melih would replicate this move in game A as "his" response to Opponents A's opening move. He is then acting as the man in the middle and each of the opponents are, in effect, playing each other, using the man in the middle as a proxy.

If the move order is any different, Melih's premise fails.

They were warned months ago but just now found something. 
Wondered how long they had been looking  and if a continuing search had been going on?

Their description was "Light Years Ahead"

http://redtape.msnbc.com/2009/01/credit-card-hac.html

Wonder if there could be a Comodo Response Team that could be put in place, along with a Commercial Package that would include more thorough inspections and questioning, to ensure new Threats are discovered and eliminated as close to Instantly as possible but not months later.

Hi Melih, I've heard enough trash talk to last me for awhile, a considerable amount of the folks that miss the memory firewall as well as BOClean as stand alone.. surely there has to be a spot to reinsert them?

at the moment we don't have any plans to introduce either as a standalone i am afraid. Both are in CIS.

thanks

Hello,

From beginning, I want to emphasize that no one could better as Melih explain the
direction in which computers protection will go. I think there is no product in
this world to protect against Zero Day attacks, but the important thing is the
direction which the Internet Security Products is going to reach this ideal and
I think Comodo Internet Security is one of them (actually am sure now  ;) ).

What I say is of my own experiences after an extensive testing of many products
based on classic AV (based on detection). I can say that in the last 6-7 years
from all products tested by me (bitdefender, avast, avira, zone alarms, pctools,
avg, mcafee, symantec and kaspersky) no one could provide me "peace", what to
say about a kind of "warranty" of protection against new malwares appeared on
the market. For conventional products based on detection, what matters is or
a good basis with signatures (which could mean many infected computers),
or a good infrastructure to detect new malwares so that the product be best
on the market. But I think this is not enough to present day. The only product
that impressed me was Kaspersky, but unfortunately not convinced me. Therefore,
in the past three years I started using Comodo as impressed by defense+ module
(HIPS technology) and I realized that this is the right direction of computer
protection, but something was missing. The missing thing was completed now
with whitelist and the sandbox. This was the first thing that made me believe
I found the product wich I'm looking for.
Most products have these modules into their component: Detection / Cleaning
and Prevention. The most classic AV are based on Detections and Cleaning but
but not so much on Prevention. What they offer in terms of prevention do
not cover the full range of new malwares on the market. The second thing
wich convinced me that I found the product wich I'm looking for is how
the three modules are used:

1. Prevention
2. Detection
3. Cleaning

I am aware that this technology is under development, but what matters is
that I found the product which can lead in the Future of Computer Security.

I can not conclude without trying to answer the question: Is Comodo Internet
Security the way to Protection against Zero Day Attacks? I think YES and if
not yet, I'm sure is the right direction!

Keep up the good work Comodo!   :-TU

Best Regards,
Ovidiu

A HIPS program is not the panacea.
People (I include me myself) will be tired of answering questions and then the HIPS fails...
I really can trust myself taking all the decisions of what is clean and what is infected in my computer. I trust in serious security companies.
Zero day attacks need a special attention: heuristic, generic signatures, algorithm detection... Some things you can achieve with a good security suite (or a set of standalone programs).

About the future of antivirus, at least on 2010, the three most downloaded programs are antivirus, free: http://download.cnet.com/8301-2007_4-20024438-12.html

Combining:

  • Download.com (the biggest download site)
  • PC World
  • Softpedia.com
  • Brothersoft.com
  • Softonic.com
  • 01net.com in France
  • Html.it in Italy
  • Chip.de in Germany
  • Dobreprogramy.pl in Poland
  • Softportal.com in Russia
  • Superdownloads.com.br and Baixaki.com.br in my Brazil

The arithmetics of the 2010 year are:
avast! 141 million
AVG    132 million
Avira   105 million

Of course, downloaded is not the final number. But it is a number after all.
Let's see Comodo in the list ;)

Comodo does not push downloads from its site to other download sites. (eg when u download from Comodo.com, you are downloading from comodo.com. we do not then push a user to a download site)

Comodo does not pay advertisers to push its free downloads.

So, do you have a number for your own downloads? Can it be disclosed?

Good. I hope the others aren't doing it, right? ;)

We don't have the downloads. We only have actual installations. we have around 15M installations last 12 months.

This is PURELY from word of mouth. and ZERO advertising dollars ;)
