I have a similar problem that I mentioned in another post, when I block Adobe Reader XI from checking for updates it still tells me if an update is available or not. Maybe Comodo has a problem with Adobe products.
I removed the license number for the obvious reason.
Since you did not try it yourself I am sceptical as we have to trust hearsay. On top of that if you cannot reproduce it I am not going to take the effort of trying.
Staying critical and sceptical; may be it is not CIS that gets bypassed but it may be coded in Acrobat Pro XI to say a key is not valid when it cannot call home. Did you check with a packet sniffer there is actually traffic flowing from your computer to Adobe?
I don’t know why you think I didn’t try it. I told you I am not a user of Adobe Acrobat - so I was informed about the issue. And sure I did try it after that. I never post something I didn’t observe by myself.
And it looks like you read my post and found illegal key only, because I wrote: it cannot be coded in Acrobat because with disabled network everything is OK. So it looks like Comodo has a leak in network blockage.
Please be attentive in the whole post, not only serial numbers
By the way - did you try what I have mentioned? Because it is very good to be critical and sceptical basing on facts, not thoughts only.
I can state only what I observed. Dumper1 has informed about some other issues related with Adobe - maybe he can help in the case you don't want try with pirated numbers.
It's not that in principle I would not use a pirated version for testing but that I don't know what exact version you are using. That is a problem for testing.
But anyway- we are not talking about way to ■■■■■ Adobe products. We are talking about why Comodo passes network connections even for legal software?
This is not about now wanting to use a pirated version in the first place. To test I need to use the same version as you have. If it is a pirated version I need to know which version because God only knows what adaptations are made with that particular pirated version you are using for this test... etc..etc...
See, that’s the problem for me with this test case. I need to run after you to get the necessary details only to find inconclusive references to the used software. Then you muddle things further by making unclear reference to posts by another member. That is not how test cases are to be presented. If you have a case present it completely so others can easily test it.
That being said if there is problem with CIS then there may be other (non pirated) applications making the same but easier test case.
At gjf. What version of CIS are you running? 5.12, 5.10 or other?
I tried the Acrobat Pro XI on my Win 8 with the CIS v6 mod’s version (.2666). I let Comodo block the internet connection and Acrobat Pro could not reach the Adobe servers to verify the provided serial code.
