Can someone try comodo firewall for these tests ?
(i am speaking about version 7)

Even if it is not mentionned ; a challenge is done as soon as a comment like this one

Comodo failed miserably and didn't even had the courage to face it
they simply chickened out

Soon we'll have a battalion of fan boys justifying the unjustifiable
Personally I'm shocked
Obvious trolling and not something to respond to.

or this one


The lack of information on Chip's end makes it hard to judge especially as I have not tried Comodo Firewall in the tested scenario myself.
I was stating the facts.

appears ...

Is comodo a hoax ? it is on this point that these comments insist on and yes, it is important to know ...
It is hard to discuss when we don't how something was tested. I use CIS on my netbook with non default tight settings. I don't have time to set up a test situation my self.

(i did not read something about "proper configurations" but pro version sometimes)

Thx.
The Pro and Free version are th same program with the same default settings.

Is there anybody with time willing to set up a test situation?

I would expect two warnings from the firewall. One that you are about to access an insecure network and it would ask if you want to use Trustconnect and the other one would be how you want to define the new network.

Can anybody who runs the default Internet Security configuration confirm it uses stealth settings with Global Rules?

I am trying to start an analysis on how we think the firewall would behave in the test situation.

i read it and it said that chip has asked AVC to test. So the original source of the test is AVC.
AVC document does not show Comodo.

Comodo Firewall is one of the best if not the best windows firewall out there, period! check www.matousec.com who is a firewall/hips testing specialist.

Do  you agree that Comodo weak on the default mode can be remote desktop  by hacker  And this happened to me was control my  mouse and deleting file in windows 8.1

There are several links ; i read avc document but a picture show us comodo in the list : confusing/trolling.
i agree with Dch48_like that it will be clearer.

So the default mode allows a control by a hacker of your files ? Is it a local survey, a weak of comodo, or a hole in 8.1 ?
i do not understand that you are saying sd ahmad ; could you explain in details please ?
Is it a real world ?

I'm more concern on the public network scenarios as I use notebook on public wifi networks in some occasions. By the way, the default setting seems a little bit weak to me and I always use custom settings.

It would be interesting to see how CIS will perform in public network under default settings.

This is so funny, so because Comodo doesn't appear in AVC test probably because they promise that they will never test Comodo again due to the unprofessional behaviour of Comodo, we shouldn't act as if this other link doesn't exists...

Forget the AVC link, what about the the CHIP.de article above?

can we try not to avoid it and discuss why the performance was so poor?
can Comodo replicate the test a give a proper explanation?
Is a design problem or can be solve changing the configuration?

These are the kind of questions that I would expect to be answer by the comodo staff (not talking about the MODs), and not simply come here and say something completely irrelevant for the security of its customers.

The matousec tests are simply an HIPS test and has nothing to do with with Firewalls or FW tests. Don't mix Host intrusion protection (OS) with firewall protection (network). You should know this. http://blog.malwarebytes.org/intelligence/2013/05/whatiships/

Fabian Wosar, from Emsisoft, posted at Wilders promising to work with AV-C to find out what went wrong.
I'd like to see the same attitude here.
Happy people are here to deceive us

in shorts :
is comodo firewall a hoax or is it one of the best ?
is the test can be done -proving or not its quality- ?
is someone trolling -writing irrelevant comment ?
is it a topic (neutral) or an ad-hominem attack between comodo staff and someone else or something else ?
are you sure that the question be the "professional attitude" ?

AVC said they would be ISO compliant in 2011!

did they deliver on their promise?

I notice that in the pdf doc they state that each firewall is "installed in default mode" and also that the tests they do are pretty basic. We all know that Windows firewall for example is not that configurable, though it's well suited to the sorts of tests that were done. CIS is highly configurable (that's one of its strengths) but it was tested only in it's default mode.

This type of testing is worthless IMHO because it doesn't tell the reader whether the firewall is able to provide good protection when configured properly, and that's what really matters. The CHIP test is rather like trying to compare several cars without actually driving any of them!

It's such an appallingly bad test that it's really not worthy of further comment. If they think that's a meaningful way to compare firewalls then their opinion isn't worth much.

I didn't think RDP was enabled by default. ??

So these tests are payed-tests like a  superficial review without any value ; a promoting article ?
...a lot of noise for nothing...
