When will IS come to Mac? D+ and the firewall begin to get essential since Mac's web application firewall is not enough and d+ will monitor the rest. Make CIS for make as well :)

It's very hard to make a HIPS for other OS... you have to know about it, comodo should then make big whitelist also for mac os (with windows there are problems already) and there aren't as many viruses as for Windows - IMO there is no need for D+.

There is need for d+. the whitelist has be adjust to just to mac.

of what I have read 20% for CIS cold has to be rewritten/changed so that it fits the OS (if a programmer programs a program for a certain OS, 20% of it code that was made for the specific OS, has to be changed in order to fit the other wanted OS.). If I were Comodo I would program in Java since most the source code is interpreted the same independent from the OS. If I write system.out.println("Hey there...") I means the same in all OS because Java Virtual machine takes care of the how the instructions should be executed. They surely use Java ME since they plan to make AV/IS for smartphones.

I've noticed that Comodo AV for mac has only mac's signatures.
I think it should has both - windows and mac - to protect windows as well (spreading windows malware via flash disks, downloads etc.).

How does it compare to Intego?
Does it have a lot of FP like in the Windows version?

I don't have a Mac OS, so I can't try the software, and I uninstalled VirtualBox too.

Cheers. :)

...spreading windows malware via flash disks, downloads etc...
Hi morphiusz ,
Can you please elaborate on this?
Since when & how "windows malware" can spread via whatever .. into Mac
or
vice versa?

Cheers!

p.s. I will be bashed for that, but anyway.
Have you ever downloaded Software & cracks for Mac using PC?
Have you ever experienced any malware after installation of such SW on Mac? I have big doubts about that, because none of them ever "failed" yet on Mac

A mac os can be a cell in spreading malware to windows :)
Like windows malware sitting in flashdisk can be deleted by mac os' AV to prevent infection on other windows computers.
Cooperation to prevent growing amount of infected computers.

Is this strictly for Intel base processors? I have a PowerBook G4 with a PowerPC processor.

I was thinking of CAV engine.
I don't understand your reply. My question is, will CAV for Mac run on a MAC with a PowerPC processor?
