COMODO Internet Security 7.0.308911.4080 BETA Released!

Hello Everyone,

We are excited to announce that COMODO Internet Security/Antivirus/Firewall 7.0.308911.4080 BETA is ready for your review.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and support during the BETA testing! Thanks to your feedback and the excellent work of our teams worldwide, we have addressed 200+ bugs and made 45+ improvements over the last CIS 6.3 release. You can see a selected set of these in release notes section below.

What’s new in 7.0.308911.4080?


Viruscope monitors the activities of processes running on your computer and alerts you if they attempt to take suspicious actions. Apart from forming yet another layer of malware detection and prevention, the sub-system represents a valuable addition to the core process-monitoring functionality of the Behavior Blocker by introducing the ability to reverse potentially undesirable actions of software without necessarily blocking the software entirely. This provides more granular control over otherwise legitimate software which requires certain actions to be taken in order to run correctly. Viruscope works using a constantly expanded list of activity ‘recognizers’, which allow the software to detect, block and undo many potentially unwanted actions.

Website Filtering
The new website filtering section gives CIS users a powerful and easy way to allow or block access to specific websites. Website access rules can be created for particular users of your computer, which makes this feature very useful for both home and work environments. For example, parents can block juvenile users from visiting inappropriate websites while companies can prevent employees from visiting leisure sites during working hours. You also have the option to create a log event whenever a user tries to visit a website which is in conflict with a rule. CIS ships with several preset lists (or ‘categories’) of URLs which can be added to rules that you create - including the ‘Malicious sites category’, the ‘Comodo Safe category’, the ‘Comodo Phishing category’ and the ‘Comodo Malware category’.

UI Update

  • The CIS user interface features several design and UX enhancements which allow you to accomplish tasks faster while keeping you better informed than ever before. New themes include the bold new ‘Metro’ theme.
  • Process Activity Dialog is added.
  • Added ‘Please call a live expert’ balloon message in main GUI when running into ‘At Risk’ status.
  • Virtual Kiosk is renamed to Virtual Desktop


  • Added full support for ICMP IPv6.
  • All CIS Advanced Settings components are now accessible via CisTray menu.
  • Windows in ‘grid view’: Improved file search operation and added ‘search completed’ notification; added ‘Jump to Folder’ option; columns now retain their widths as last changed by the user.
  • Fixed cursor behavior when dragging folders to ‘Sandbox Objects’.
  • Newly created rule in HIPS rules lists are added on the top of the list (instead of the bottom).
  • AV Scan results and Rating scan results windows can be viewed in full screen mode.
  • CIS UI tooltips now correspond to Windows style.
  • CIS date and time format are applied from the user’s Windows settings

What needs to be tested?

The most important features of this BETA are related to Viruscope and Website Filtering. So the most valuable bugs are the REPRODUCIBLE bugs which are related to system stability issues, compatibility issues, and crashes.

You are more than welcome to test all other features as well.

Yay v7 beta! Finally!

Woot Woot ;D


It appears this was accidentally posted in the wrong part of the forum. I’ll move this to the Beta board.

Welcome welcome my lord >:-D

Thanks Sergey Kazakov and welcome the forum :slight_smile:

Ready to see this in action :slight_smile: Thank you!

Is there a help page to get us accustomed to the new release (settings, etc.)?

Great Job Devs!

I love the 3 theme choices, I don’t know if they will be around in the final version but I personally like the Tile Theme.

Also I love how the CIS v7 GUI has been polished and it looks really, really good :slight_smile:

Seems to be fine now… Can’t tell what happened :a0

Does version 6 AV databases works with this beta?

Please note that all bugs for this Beta should be reported in their own topic. The method for reporting bugs for this Beta is very similar to the way it is done for a normal release. Create one topic per bug you wish you report. If you encounter more than one bug please create multiple posts.

The required format is given here:

Can I export my firewall rules and import them into CIS7?

I think it is possible (no guarantees) with a but… You will most likely not use the settings that are new with v7. For testing purposes I don’t recommend using an old config but using the new settings. That way Comodo will get relevant bug reports as the purpose is to test new functionality.

However you can use them and when you run into a bug switch to a default configuration and see if it reproduces and then report it.

I like it, too. It is between modern and classic theme :-TU Thanks devs for your hard work, I can’t resist maybe I will upgrade in my real-system :smiley:

Does anyone know if the submit files through CIS bug is fixed in this version? I forgot to check that when I was testing it :azn:

It is awesome. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Thank you CIS development Team. and Have a happy Chinese New Year!

Please do observe this - your bugs will not be put into the tracker otherwise. I have split some out, but please add formatted reports for each one please.

If you only use the firewall, do you get the Viruscope & web filter?
