Comodo Cloud Antivirus v1.12.419801.531 Released

Hi All,

Thank you very much for all the feedback on beta testing.
We are pleased to announce release of Comodo Cloud Antivirus v1.12.419801.531.

Following are changes:
1) Protected Files / Folders:
“Settings–>Sandbox->Protected Data” has now been renamed as “Settings–>Sandbox->Protected Files/Folders”.
It means following:

  • Like before, you can define folder which can’t be modified, now contents inside those folders will be invisible to Sandbox apps. So neither read nor write is allowed.
  • You can define any file path and it won’t be visible to Sandboxed applications
  • As default you will find following entries in there:

%SystemDrive%\users\*\saved games\* 

i.e. no file inside above defined folders will be visible to Sandboxed application.

The objective is that even if you have a malware in Sandbox, it now even can’t read your data and transfer.
So sandboxed applications are now having access to only files, which are either created by them or they can read other contents as long as they are not defined in this section.

2) Enhanced Clipboard Protection:
Earlier we prevented clipboard access to Sandbox application, where sandbox application could not access clipboard, now sandboxed application clipboard data could also not be copied outside. It takes care of situations where malware applications could transfer malicious contents via clipboard to outside sandbox. Even though you were protected due to default-deny, but now that situation itself is prevented from arising.

3) Recognizer Update Control:
Earlier recognizers could be auto updated. Now user has control. In “General Settings -->Updates” now there is a check box “Update recognizer automatically”, selected by default, it lets you control recognizer update.
Additionally after this release onward, we will just have to flip a configuration setting on server side to convert recognizer from test mode to alert mode and vice-versa without requiring new binary update.

4) Clearing Recently Used Virtual Apps
Earlier if you used ‘Run Virtual’ option, you could have executed apps list always there. Now you can clear up. There is a trash icon in there.

5) Crash Fixes:
In last major release v505, we introduced crash reporting. It has been of great help and allowed us to receive reports beyond forums community. Many crashes have been fixed and this is a much-stable version. Our objective is to ensure that we create a product that works for all and is rock-solid. We will continue to fix issues as received from users.

6) Advanced Protection
Now “Settings–>Browser Settings Protection” has been renamed as “Settings–>Advanced Protection” and it’s settings moved as sub section “Browser Settings Protection”, allowing to add more sub sections in there.

Setup Details:

We have released CCAV for new installations only and will release updates to existing users next week.

Thank you very much for all the help.


:-TU :-TU :-TU

Installed and working ok!!!.

I have to uninstall/install because after upgraded without uninstall beta version i obtain slowdowns and problems on configuration interface.

Clean install and working fine

I have been absent for some time, and just stepped back in, seen this version, dropped into the VM, and must say, I’m impressed with how far along it has come. I’m still testing, but as for now, the UI is simply stunning with the Dark theme. Response of the Auto-Sandbox is lighting fast, and integration of the Windows Defender Security Center was seamless, something that can not even be said of a few of the larger Vendors. I will report more back at a later date after I have had some time to fully dig in, but until then :-TU

Welcome back!
Looking forward for any feedback you may have.

I was waiting for the automatic update, but it didn’t show up.
So, I downloaded the new exe and I run it over the previous version.
The update went smoothly and it kept my custom settings, plus the new features :-TU

Compare with the nightmares I had on every CFW update, CCAV is really a relief :slight_smile:

We will release update on Monday, 12th Jun.

Perfect! :-TU
Only one little problem: The manual set widget position always will be default above right after reboot.
It is expected the improvement?

Hi All,
Please see if you could give a try to release candidate v533:

Thank you
