CCAV Chrome extension and portable sandbox
« on: May 24, 2016, 03:50:49 AM »
Hi, I have just noticed that there is a CCAV extension on Chrome Web Store:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/comodo-cloud-antivirus/dbholhabhgiapdakiikjbfegpfmmncfp?hl=it
I haven't heard about it before. Is it official from Comodo? How does it work?
Thanks

It is something like scanner extension which connected to comodo cloud. It scans the downloaded files with comodo cloud. If the malware detected, then it warns you about it. This is what I saw.

Comodo Portable Sandbox is seperate software. It is not related with CCAV. Extension offers the Comodo Portable Sandbox (ıt is beta).. extension downloads the Comodo Portable Sandbox and you have to install it to use the extension properly. Then, extension lets you tweak settings. I do not get it why Comodo doing such thing..

It looks like it's an executable, if you install the driver. I think there may be conflict with other security products COMODO?

Could develop some way of indentificar extension if there is a version of the CIS or Comodo Cloud Antivirus, for exemple.

I have not much information. But the extension needs Comodo Portable Sandbox to work properly.

Thanks captainsticks.
But now I have another question, if you don't mind.
CPSP looks like CCAV without the Cloud AV. Is that correct?
So, if I install CPSP and CCAV chrome extension, does it mean that the AV just checks the file downloaded from chrome?
Actually, nowadays most of the threats comes from browser and e-mail, so this approach is not so bad

Hi Jon79,
I haven't done much testing yet and know very little about it at this moment, sorry.
From the first appearance it looks as if the extension scans downloaded files and rates them, with the only available settings to show the rating or/and to delete the file.

Installing the sandbox along with the extension, you get the extra settings shown in the screenshot.

Hope that helps.

Edit: Added a screenshot of the available options if only the extension is used without the sandbox plugin.

Hi yigido,
Without the sandbox plugin the extension still appears to scan and rate a downloaded file with the option to delete, but without all the other sandbox options.

Kind regards.

Hi captainsticks,

yes, now it's more clear, thanks.
As I said, since most threats come from internet, the idea is not bad.
I just wonder if I can sandbox a file that, for example, I receive by e-mail...

Anyway, strange that this new solution hasn't been advertised here in the forum
