Yep in todays world just an AV is definitely not enough.

I think we need to start supporting Linux more, LOL... :)

I LOVE Linux :)

I used to only browse the internet in a virtual machine running Linux to be safe, but I no longer feel a need to have to use Linux...thanks to sandbox technology. That could not have been said just 2 years ago. Thanks to Comodo and few other progs. too.

But we have to be honest and say that a local behavioural blocking would be nice addition to the Default Deny strategy used by COMODO. I also agree that if you think Avira, Avast, AVG, etc. can protect you - you're mad. These companies are using methods, which may have been effective 10 years ago, but now we need something new to be protected.

This will be included in a future release. Can't say which one, but it has been planned for a while.

Do you really think you will be safe if you run an antivirus program?

If you do, then you are MAD, MAD, MAD!!!! :)

Having cleaned a lot of infected pc , I can affirm that probability to receive an infection depends upon skills of the user and their preference when they surf. A lot of them entered in site that should be avoided entering Comodo DNS or using a serivce like K9. In the past security companies leaved HIPS product, but now they're coming back. In any case, I know people who didn't have a threat even if they have only a traditional free AV based on signature; other who had cashes even if they have installed more sofisticated suites...
Business could be segmented on the base of human foolishnesh that we can label as "propensity to tisk" ; ;D

In addition to my previous post, I invite you to perform a statistical analys (if nevere done): You'll discover that a lot of people believe that the only way to download a virus, trojan, etc. in inerne is surfing sites witn pornograpy contents...
Maybe is useful to study victimology  ;)

We trust that an AV will at least try (to the best of the company's ability) to keep their users safe.  ;)

Same with Comodo, avast!, Panda, etc. I guess all those crazy losers that are running Comodo thinking it will keep them safe (oh look, trust is popping up here too), so there isn't any point running an AV?

Usability is a point to keep an AV. It will help to reduce the amount of alerts CIS will give.
