Comodo Cloud Antivirus v1.8.407941.426 Released
« on: January 25, 2017, 03:17:46 pm »
Hi All,
We are happy to announce release of Comodo Cloud Antivirus v1.8.407941.426.
This release has major functional changes.

DOWNLOAD:

Path: http://download.comodo.com/ccav/installers/ccav_installer.exe
SHA-1: 611a97edfb23821ae71ed627b0571d15b4f00ef5


FIXES:
- Protection against Petya Ransomware as reported below:
https://forums.comodo.com/news-announcements-feedback-ccav/comodo-cloud-antivirus-18407387418-hotfix-version-is-released-t117941.0.html;msg849687#msg849687

NEW:
In order to bring efficiency and make CCAV and back-end cloud infrastructure responding to latest unknowns faster, we are rolling out solution in two phases:

1st Phase: This CCAV release.
2nd Phase: Within next two weeks Valkyrie infrastructure changes will be completed.

What does this release mean?

1 - Only applications, which end up running in Sandbox will be submitted to Valkyrie directly and will be classified into Trusted or Malicious on priority basis. Therefore, "Valkyrie Analysis Results" section will only show status of applications, which have run in Sandbox.

2 - You can always submit files to Valkyrie using right click option (i.e. "Comodo Cloud Antivirus --> Submit to Valkyrie") or via "Help --> Submit File" menu.

3 - Applications, which are encountered during scanning (custom or full) and are found absent in Comodo back-end, will be uploaded to Comodo for analysis, same way like we have in Comodo Internet Security.

4 - Now "Settings --> File Rating --> Reported False Positive" has been renamed as "Settings --> File Rating --> Submitted Applications", it will list all applications, which were reported as false-positive or were submitted during on-demand scan. All applications listed in this interface, won't be looked up into Cloud periodically, if you want to know latest status of file verdict, you should re-scan them. As explained earlier, in case applications are executed, cloud lookup is done and if they run in Sandbox, they become part of Valkyrie sub system and looked up periodically so can be classified into Trusted or Malicious quickly.

5 - Rating scan has been removed and instead we use Full scan as default scan upon new installation.

6 - When you update to this latest version, "Valkyrie Analysis Section", will start from zero and show analysis results of applications which going forward run in Sandbox.

After we are done with 2nd phase i.e. server side changes, we can expect following:
A - Cloud lookup problems as have been frequently reported, should disappear.
B - Applications part of "Being Analyzed" section should be cleared out faster rather staying there for long period.

We consider Comodo Cloud Antivirus as future of client side security due to it's light weight, direct Valkyrie integration and Default Deny architecture.

We are committed to make CCAV a better product with every release and need your constant feedback and support.

You should receive program updates.

Thanks
-umesh

Nice  :-TU
the upgrade went smooth and "Valkyrie Analysis Results" was cleared correctly


1 - Only applications, which end up running in Sandbox will be submitted to Valkyrie directly and will be classified into Trusted or Malicious on priority basis. Therefore, "Valkyrie Analysis Results" section will only show status of applications, which have run in Sandbox.

6 - When you update to this latest version, "Valkyrie Analysis Section", will start from zero and show analysis results of applications which going forward run in Sandbox.

Hi BlueTesta,
There is an exception, which will be dealt in next release. If application path has "install" word, it gets submitted to Valkyrie.

Thanks

When we are done with server side changes fully, we will ask you to check this part, at the moment delays are possible.

CCAV uninstall creates 2 files ccavstart & cmdhtml in Users - UserName - AppData - Roaming, why?

Those 2 files shouldn't be there.

Please during install provide an option to not install "Internet Security Essentials".

And I think you should have removed rating scan in the upcoming version, full scan is very very very slow.

I am thinking of installing CCAV on my & cousin family systems.

Unknown Installers run sandboxed & everything is cleared - No probs here.

Whitelisted Installers run out of sandbox BUT if couple files get sandboxed - Probs here i.e how would I know if the programs my family installed were installed completely or incompletely i.e couple files were sandboxed?

Hi Yash Khan,
Thanks for pointing out. They are actually intermediate files and should be created in temporary folder.
You can delete those.

We will fix it in next release.

Thanks

Hi Yash,
There are areas of improvement on full scan and we will be addressing in back-end.

Thanks
