!ot! As a CCAV user, could someone advise which product (CCAV or CIS) offers the best security? I'm thinking CIS as it includes a firewall or is Windows firewall up to the job? Btw, running Windows 10.

Safe to say that they have surely other exploits for the latest version of COMODO.

At this point they might be shredding all the evidence of the entire spysoftware that they have created.
To be honest, at this point what should we expect of agencys like these around the world.

Nothing digital feels safe anymore.

Always wondered how exactly everyone handles these situations.  The responsible approach would be to contact involved companies.

none of these exist in latest version...they were never full holes as they admit......"Please note that this is only a partial defeat."

Comodo is the only Antivirus company that received such flattery from CIA!

Last time I checked, it still existed in latest (current) version of CES (Comodo Endpoint Security)  ???

I got aware of this watching The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. watch here: https://youtu.be/DZMQu30RsX4?t=8m26s
Apparently Comodo 6.x was described as a "gaping whole of DOOM".

So basically CIA is saying Comodo 6.x is an exploitation vector (?) and Melih is saying Hurray ?!? Am I missing something
CIA said Comodo 5 is good, Comodo 6 is not.

And now we have CIS 10, which according to developers, has not any of these flaws.

It really doesn't matter as both of those versions are outdated and not supported anymore, we are on version 10 which doesn't have any of those flaws.
