Dunstan,

Looking closer, there are 2 files created by Dragon updater/installer in c:\Windows\Temp. The one I mentioned previously which is a log file, hence a document text that you can easily read and send by pieces to Avira.

The second one is dragon_version.inf. It contains only 131 bytes.

One of the reasons  I stuck to Mozilla products for so long was the ability to customize the browser including the appearance.  I had switched to a third party theme prior to this unannounced update in which you can no longer change the theme.  Between this ridiculous idea and the constant crashing lately with one user script I am thinking of returning to Mozilla or perhaps trying IE which btw has gained market share while Chrome loses market share.  Do developers not pay attention to what people want in their browser?  I have surfed the internet on my own personal computers since 2003 with a variety of Windows browser offerings and am greatly disappointed with upgrades which seem to make the browsing experience WORSE and not better.  My advice to Comodo...update immediately with the option to change browser themes.

Boris 3,

Here are "%name%.tmp" file - with program data itself - wich just disappear after termination by user, or when installation ended; log-files still in that directory after the end of the process. Trojan, or somesthing, is a part of that ".tmp" file - which include a program data. There is no need to send harmless logs - but '.tmp" file with the trojan.

Boris 3,

Here are "%name%.tmp" file - with program data itself - wich just disappear after termination by user, or when installation ended; log-files still in that directory after the end of the process. Trojan, or somesthing, is a part of that ".tmp" file - which include a program data. There is no need to send harmless logs - but '.tmp" file with the trojan.

I've done the update with the standalone installer mentioned in the post of lightstep. As I run Defense+ in parano mode and haven't made a rule for Dragon updater, I'm alerted of all his moves. You'll see in the attached image the files created during the update process.

To be noted, in your original post you said that the alert from Avira pointed to a file in C:\Windows\Temp
Quote
Looks like we have problems here - an "Avira" reported "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen" trojan into installation distributive in process to install new version (C:\Windows\Temp\Dra4638.tmp).

In another post you were anxious of the use of \Windows\temp by Dragon updater
Quote
By the way - the installlation process looks strange itself - very suspicious that installation program choose directory such as "windows\temp"; directory like "C:\Users\%user%\AppData\Temp" looks more common.

Now you say that the "trojan" is in *\user\temp file
Here are "%name%.tmp" file - with program data itself - wich just disappear after termination by user, or when installation ended; log-files still in that directory after the end of the process. Trojan, or somesthing, is a part of that ".tmp" file - which include a program data. There is no need to send harmless logs - but '.tmp" file with the trojan.
By the way, would it not be more correct to speak of potential FP instead of trojan?

Dear EricJH - I just use that "HashTab"; here the results:
CRC32: AA99E488
MD5: 13D730347874666D4D464ADC1C4D3354
SHA-1: 99BE59C36DD055C66F3C95CCC3F4FBBFC5D83B1C

Looks like everything the "ok" in the file's digital signature.

Now I think about - how to tell  bout this incindent to people from "Avira" ? They provide an instrument for such tasks - http://analysis.avira.com/samples/ - but that temp file, wich created by the "Dragon" installation process, is too big to send with that "Avira's" tool.
Does this topic hold the answer for you?

Ok. Now I'll speak nothing - and show small series of pictures - it is clear, I think.

And I cannot send giant files - like that ".tmp" - about three reasons - this too big for "Avira's" server, I have CDMA-modem and I'm on a budget.

I want a browser able to change the default (and often boring) theme! Used to be like that in version 18.1, why change that? Brand awareness? It already states Comodo next to the minimize window button. How much more awareness does one need?   >:(

Automatic updated automatically UNINSTALLED Dragon 18.2 18.1 while I was out at lunch, but did not reinstall anything.

Came back to a PC with no default browser set. Posting from Firefox.

Dragon desktop icon removed, nothing left in Program Files/Comodo/Dragon except:

avcodec-53.dll 05/05/2012 4:28am 1,075KB
dragon_updater.exe 04/13/2012 6:59am 400KB
restart_helper.exe 05/04/2012 4:28am  134KB
wow_helper.exe 05/05/2012 4:28am 72KB

system time is US MDT (UTC-0600)

Nice job, Comodo. NOT. A failed install should never delete the previous version.

PC did not reboot, no dragon_updater process running, no dragon_exe process running. I had left Dragon open when I went out to lunch.

Secure private residence, nobody was in here. Automatically updated CIS too, so nobody got in that way unless you let them in.

Don't ask me to post more details on a bug report; you've inconvenienced me enough today by destroying my browser setup.
Windows 7 Professional 32bit

Hello,

The setup does not launch while the browser is running. Were there any error messages linking to a crash when you discovered the problem?

It would be much appreciated if you could upload the following files:
-  "dragon_updater.exe" log files from %windir%\Temp\ComodoLogsFolder
-  "Dragonsetup.exe" log files from %temp%\ComodoLogsFolder

Thank you for your support.

Dragon is the most fast browser I tested. But I really dislike the fact we can't change themes. I like to match the colors from my desktop. You could put some built-in themes at least.

As far as I am concerned there is not good reason for the developers to have modified the code to not allow changing of themes.  They need to change it back.  How difficult is it to modify it and re-release it?

Can the Dragon devs give an estimation when the ability to use themes will return?
