Sorry for my subject error
What I noticed in the management of the firewall rules:
1- In the program rules, I edit a rule then I modify the name of the .exe application then I save the modification with Ok
2- This action must not be because it creates a "ghost application"
3- Consulting the program rules brings up an application that cannot exist for the management of the firewall since the name does not comply (name change)
I think that the name of the applications should not be modified outside the rules
Here is my opinion

Hi All,

Is anyone facing this issue which is reported by domo78, if so kindly drop us the steps to reproduce .

Thanks
C.O.M.O.D.O RT

I think domo78 should provide clear steps (in a bug report format or so) how to reproduce this issue as I couldn't reproduce it on my end.

Hello C.O.M.O.D.O RT,

I sent you by PM a PDF file containing a series of screenshots reproducing the error.

Hopefully this will help.

Here is my opinion

I don't think that this is an issue but rather a usable feature.
For example, you could create several different FW rules for the same application and give those FW rules all but one a different (non existent) exe file name. If one FW rule for that particular application doesn't suit your needs then you can simply deactivate that FW rule by renaming the exe file name and activate another FW rule for that same application by changing the exe file name into the real exe file name.

Furthermore I don't think that CIS FW operation will be disturbed or noticeably affected when FW rules contain non existent exe file names which would be the same effect when you have FW rules for applications in place and those applications no longer exist on your system because of uninstallation or manual removal.

It seems you don't understand my explanation
If I change the PROGRAM NAME while editing (this is allowed in CIS 8012), for example CCupdate.exe to CCupdat.exe, what does this new name correspond to in the firewall rules ? (since it does not exist in the programs)
Why does the Comodo firewall allow the name of the application to be monitored to be changed ?

Hmm, I think I did understand your explanation correctly.

I was just trying to explain to you that changing the program name from, for example, CCupdate.exe to CCupdat.exe could be useful in some cases when, for example, you want to try out several FW rules with different FW settings for CCupdate.exe without having to edit one and the same FW rule each and every time.
So you can have multiple FW rules (each with their specific FW settings) for example for (non existent) program names like CCupdate-1.exe, CCupdate-2.exe and CCupdate-3.exe and then change one of those non-existent program names to CCupdate.exe when you want to try out that specific FW rule.

Editing a program name into a non existent program is a valid operation since the same thing also happens when a program is uninstalled from the system but the FW rule for that program is still present / listed.

Please re-read my whole previous post, but maybe things are still unclear.

You have to stop saying nonsense
At no time is there any talk of modifying the NAME of the application in the help

https://help.comodo.com/topic-72-1-766-9173-Application-Rules.html

The fact of raising an inconsistency in the management of the Comodo firewall is only for the Staff to take note and inform the developers

Just my two pence on this one. You'd also need to change the File Ratings for these files and you'd need to change the application rules for Comodo if your changing one from that directory. You'd also need to be using Custom Ruleset as the FW Mode.  My guess is that if all your doing is changing the file name without selecting the actual file via Browse, it'd in the background use the same file. More often than not you also need to restart for those rules to work. If you wanted to be alterted by everything, run HIPS in Paranoid mode

I'm no expert, just thinking out loud. At the end of the day, you changing the file name is an action by the user not unknown or malware.

Editing the name field of a FW rule was always possible since I started using Comodo from version 2 or 3 till the current version.
Without the ability for the user to the edit the FW rule name field it would also not be possible to create a FW rule for a Folder (see wish Firewall Add Application Rule - Add Folder option to Browse Pulldown Menu) but only for the items presented to the user in the Browse Pulldown Menu which would limit the use case of FW rules very much.

Again, editing the FW rule name field was always possible but obviuosly I'm talking complete nonsense.

Hello,

Can you add this one to the list :
25. Renaming a Portset causes disruptions in the rules that use it.

C.O.M.O.D.O RT has reproduced the issue.

Thanks

add this one too: the god damn systray icon that desappears :P its a bug and its there for atleast 2 years and unresolved..

so, the list is about 25 items so far and that will change as people will realize this topic is here so people will post their findings and bugs in here too, atleast i expect that. this could be good so comodo devs can see that there are several problems with their product that they have to fix.

I can not contibute to this list as Im not running cis anymore. so much bugs that i coudnt stand it. but i can try to do a clean install of windows 11, clean install latest cis to try some of those.. maybe next month or so. if needed..
