Comodo Internet Security 2024 v12.3.1.8104 beta

Not so easy

you don’t have an xml file, Like years old?

I see. We do have translation files in place. If you could share screenshots and point the wrong translation, that would be enough for us…


It’s been over 2 months since I requested the following feature. Every time your response says that we will update you soon, will the feature be there in the next beta?

Hi khanyash,

Thank you for reporting.
We created feature request ticket in the corresponding board and the team is working on it. (Ticket ID: CIST-20108)
We will update you as soon as it is implemented.

Hi, a few questions from a long-time Comodo user:

  1. How stable and relatively bug free is the second beta? The first one looked like a total mess, but I don’t see so many issues mentioned with this thread. Is it decent enough to update from 8012?

  2. What’s the current situation with VPN network adapters? Still no support for Wireguard or most OpenVPN implementations? With the last official version the only supported VPN adapter type seemed to be OpenVPN TAP-Windows. Others, like OpenVPN’s WinTun or Data Channel Offload are not being filtered by Comodo at all (no firewall whatsoever), and trying to install the Comodo service manually in the adapters’ settings always resulted in an error.

  3. (2b, really) Comodo staff: If VPN adapters are still unsupported, are any plans to include such support in the near future? I’d really like to know whether I should wait or start looking for an alternative solution.

Thanks in advance.

Some answers you can find there:

Running Windows 10 Pro 22H2 Build 19045.3570
Installed CIS Beta
Let quick scan complete then rebooted. Enabled Hips. Changed theme to classic. Rebooted again.
Made two changes to settings: Check for program updates every 7 days and allowed contained application access to clipboard. Rebooted yet again.
Clicked on quick scan with no response, same with full scan.
Had read on forum that some people had experienced this happening only on some themes.
Tried every single theme, still no response to either scan.
Program is unusable at present so removed and reinstalled v12.2.2.8012
Please fix.



Decided to give the beta a spin.

OS: Windows 11 Pro, fresh install, fully updated
Installation scope: Firewall only (I deselected the Antivirus), English

Installation went smootly without any issues. Comodo registered inself correctly in the Windows Security Center.
Only one small thing I noticed: After the first reboot, I took quite some time before the icon was visible in the the taskbar (the space where the icon should appear was reserved and hovering over it showed Comodo). From the next reboot on, this issue disappeared.

Configuration without issues and very much like the old version. No remarks there.

Overall a positive experience so far, but I do have some remarks/questions.


  • Is there no ‘Advanced view’ anymore? I prefer to see at a glance what’s going on on my computer rather than just seeing: ‘This computer is protected’.
  • While the notifications in the new GUI are nice and easy to read, they seem to be a little too big.


  • The file contect menu (right click > Show more options) displays 5 Comodo JSON options. I suppose this is for the beta only?
  • I clicked ‘Start a quick scan’ on the main page >> nothing seemed to happen, until I noticed in the desktop widget that this has started a Task. The task took a couple of minutes to complete, but nothing was ever shown to me.
  • The ‘Start a quick scan’ apparently started a virusscan, but I deselected the virusscanner during installion. So the virusscanner was installed anyway? I do not want that, as I use a different antivirus solution.

That’s it for now. Thank you Comodo for building this new version.


I noticed that following Windows processes are Contained by Comodo while they have the ‘Trusted’ rating.

  • C:\Windows\System32\smartscreen.exe
  • C:\Windows\System32\dllhost.exe
  • C:\Windows\System32\conhost.exe

Why is that?

You can change the theme back to Lycia which is the old UI and has advanced view as before.


Can you show log entries? It more than likely that these are just blocked by firewall for TCP port 443.

Using Lycia indeed works as a workaround or now, but I think it would be better and more future proof if a similar view would be added to the new UI.

They are really contained (Run virtually).
When the checking the logs from yesterday, I noticed they have been contained while I was installing a device program which was also contained at first. So I guess they (dllhost and conhost) were contained because the parent process was contained.
Why smartscreen was contained, I don’t know.

BUT, today I noticed that svchost.exe was contained for no reason. See the log screen below:

hi @DonGaz , thank you very much for sharing feedback! We are working on adding Advanced View within the new theme: CS-48330.

For easier bug tracking, I reported some more findings and potential bugs in the category Bug Reports, Beta Corner - CIS - Comodo Forum rather than just posting everything in this topic.
I hope that is the correct way to do so.

You are absolutely correct! Thank you very much for sharing those, we will be escalating those as soon as possible.
I will inform soon.

Seems I can’t perform manual Scans under the Lycia Theme. When clicking over Quick or Full scan, it doesn’t seem to be working.

Hi RamboNTanga,

Thank you for reporting.
We are aware of this issue.
Ticket ID: CS-49869.

There is a possible date for the release of the version 2024 as stable?
The current CIS how old is, when was released?

I hope to be able to see the new version as stable.
I’m using CIS stable but I think its a very old version that maybe never get update since long time :slight_smile:

hi @peopleinside , the current Beta version was released on October 23rd. We aim to publish one last beta version at end of December, including a lot of bugfixes as we did previously, and then we plan to roll out the stable version of Comodo Internet Security 2024 on January or at latest early February 2024.
