Comodo is malware in itself
« on: February 18, 2012, 08:52:39 AM »
I'm completely cheesed of with the way comodo conducts it's business on my own computer.
the main reason today is that despite disabling everything in on the context menu on my xp, the scanner is still running and adding false positives to quarantine. nothing i can do will stop it. and i can't even stop the service when i want to. "access is denied" GRRR....

I added an entire folder to the exclusions, but it had already deleted the file is had wrongly identified as a threat. 

the interface is misleading and unclear. A users choice to disable something should do exactly that, not do as you frickin please!! especially when you comodo get the false positives so glaringly wrong andf then can't even bother giving it a classification or description. The incompetencies are astounding!!!

unclassified malware is not a threat. it's not even classified as a threat or malware. it's just something comodo wants to look at.. oooh and that's another thing..  the logs it transmits back when comodo "phones home" is also not clearly declared to end users. It contains alot more than some would deem necessary. get your wireshark out folks and look exactly at what is being transmitted. COMODO is malware.  as i type this comodo is using 50% with EVERYTHING disabled. (including defense+ permanently disabled).  Uninstalled and formatting the disk. Comodo = Spyware/malware/poorware.

I don't speak for comodo but for myself and I can say everything you said is wrong. If you don't know how to use it that's your problem. It seems to me that you don't want to learn so I say good riddance, we don't need people like you around here, use whatever security you want but when you get infected don't come crying here.

By context menu, do you mean the options that pop-up if you right-click on the CIS tray icon?

If you select Disable for any of the modules in CIS, they are in fact disabled. However, disabling these will not stop a scan in progress.

Edit: D+ will still have some functionality when disabled from the tray icon, but can be disabled permanently from within the GUI.

I added an entire folder to the exclusions, but it had already deleted the file is had wrongly identified as a threat.  

CIS doesn't delete things unless you tell it to do so. The file would be in quarantine.

the interface is misleading and unclear. A users choice to disable something should do exactly that, not do as you frickin please!! especially when you comodo get the false positives so glaringly wrong andf then can't even bother giving it a classification or description. The incompetencies are astounding!!!

Disable does in fact mean disable, as I've already stated. If you're interested in reporting the false positives, they are fixed by Comodo in a pretty timely manner.

unclassified malware is not a threat. it's not even classified as a threat or malware. it's just something comodo wants to look at..

If it looks like malware, it's always a good idea to check it out...

oooh and that's another thing..  the logs it transmits back when comodo "phones home" is also not clearly declared to end users. It contains alot more than some would deem necessary. get your wireshark out folks and look exactly at what is being transmitted.

Comodo does have a cloud component. This can be disabled. I'm really not sure how clearly the cloud concept needs to be declared to end users. Options like, Enable cloud scanning, and Submit unknown files for analysis seem fairly self explanatory.

COMODO is malware.  as i type this comodo is using 50% with EVERYTHING disabled. (including defense+ permanently disabled).  Uninstalled and formatting the disk. Comodo = Spyware/malware/poorware.

If Comodo is using 50% (of your CPU cycles I'm assuming...) with everything disabled, then there is something wrong with your installation. (Unless perhaps a scan is running, as it sounds like there may be)

anyway i use comodo since 6 years and when a paranoid attack make me delete comodo after 15 minutes i re-installing comodo firewall because only my prophet melih abdulhayogluykjlyjtjrkt, his team of high payed  genius's  maded a un-inimitable software(im honest only with comodo 2 i was very lost but since comodo 3 and now there are no revals!).
I use ONLY-AND I SAY ONLY THE COMODO FIREWALL!!!.please keep it up the good work and on the future do not impose to install others things like gekky buddy(for now we are not forced to install it lol ) exetera exetera.

Thanks fo replying Heffe D.
However, I may have not made myself clear. Everything disabled literally means it was disabled. Or so i was led to believe...which is the problem.  There were no scans in progress, either scheduled or manual.
It would be very interesting to see what an actual comodo developer has to say on the subject. Why are components not disabled immediately? If there is a scan in progress, should the product not say so?

Other reply posters in this thread:
Has anybody has actually bothered to test or confirm my findings?

And regarding the forum itself. I can understand standing by your product, but don't label it 'feedback' and then expect every single post to only give good feedback.  If you don't like the feedback you recieve then remove the option to give feedback, or make the product better and less malware like in it's behaviour.

Sorry you have had this problem.

The context menu disables real time scanning not scheduled scans, I think. To disble scheduled scans you need t remove all scans from scheduled scans.

Did you find the deleted file in the AV quarantine folder? If not it's possible there is a bug, so we would like to know.

Re phoning home, could you list the types of data it transmitted which you felt were inappropriate? Note that CIS does now ask permission to transmit unrecognised files when you install it. You can decline this.

Re unclasified malware or unrecognised files not being a threat. CIS sees every unknown file as a possible threat. That's how it protects you so well against new (zero day) infections. It's paranoid so you don't have to be quite so paranoid :). Typically it sandboxes or quarantines such possible threats, it does not delete them.

If you want *full* control  and can cope with it technically, CIS allows that as well. It takes some effort but it is achievable with CIS unlike other security packages. I can direct you to some posts if you wish.

Hope this reassures you a bit.

Best wishes

Heuristic detections have "Heur" and/or "Suspicious" label.
Unclassified malware origins from signature database.

pls correct me if im wrong  ;)
