I don’t really see the point, V6 probaby has a better default mode and perhaps security overall but that is not what I’ve seen the arguments are about for V5, many (not all) who go back to V5 do this becuase the GUI in V6 is horrible (in their and my oppinion) also because V6 has more of a performance hit on some systems, at least if you read some posts.
Then there are also a lot of people who configure CIS to their liking (like me) and then the comparison becomes invalid instantly.
But sure, for the fun of it maybe? Though I’m not doing any such things until I get a system I can test on.
Which flaws are these? I thought the only significant vulnerabilities found in V6 were related to the FV sandbox. Were you looking for a comparison between the two FV sandboxes? If so, I’m not even sure how to adequately test V5’s. I think you may need to manually add each one to be FV sandboxed by path, but I’m not sure. I never even used it in V5.
Which setting are you looking at being compared between the two? I ask because I know the default settings have been improved for V6, but I believe (but could be wrong) that untrusted should at least provide the same protection. Either way, I believe it would be very difficult to find malware which can bypass the higher levels of the sandbox.
I would like to see V5 v/s V6 with default Internet Security Config with default settings. This is Comodo’s default & recommended settings for most of the users. And if I have time I will test this comparison myself & post the results here.
People would also like to see tests with increased or custom security settings.
If you have time plzz test with both default & custom settings the users here would like to test.
