How does threatcast prevent the following scenario form happening.

A Nigerian spammer develops a new malware / spyware product (not necessarily a virus, but imagine a program that spreads by advertising and providing some free ringtones while data mining the computer for e-mail addresses to spam to) . He then gets 1000 of his employees to install it on the Comodo protected computer and *allow* the program to do it's bidding. Then he releases it onto popular ring tone sites. Now all the people protected by Comodo going to that site and installing the software will see it marked as 'safe' by the community, allowing it do do it's malicious work.

Now just in case data mining for e-mail addresses is too suspicous, imagine something else like modifying search results or creating pop under ads.

How is threatcast going to stop this from happening?
