We have updated the Leak Test Suite. The purpose of this update is to fix the incorrect scores. There was a bug in CLT which was causing wrong results to be produced.
The updated version will be available in the web site possibly on Monday. But you can download it now from the attachment.
[Mod Edit By Chiron] Please note that this leaktest was not designed to work with the Sandbox. Thus any results you get while running it in the sandbox should be considered very unreliable. It is not a good test for the more recent version of Comodo Firewall.
It now fails Hijacking : StartupPrograms with CIS 3.5.54375.427 with Defense+ in Paranoid Mode and the firewall in Custom Policy Mode. I’m using Windows XP SP3 without any security software except for CIS (and yes, I blocked everything). I got 250/340 this time on a limited user account without any protection (compared to 240 last time).
I do have one question about Active Desktop. It’s says I’m vulnerable, however, the HTML-file required for Active Desktop can’t be found. I get an error message like this (translated from Swedish to English):
Unable to find the HTML-file for Active Desktop. This file is required to use Active Desktop.
Click OK to disable Active Desktop.
It’s obviously trying to use Active Desktop, but it fails, so how come I’m vulnerable?
The only suggestion I would like to propose (from a tutorial point of view) is merging the information contained into clt.html into the CLT screen, test by test, so that while running the tests you also learn something.
Hye guys ,
i did try this test and my score is 30/340 and i think is very low score.
On pcflank and shields up all test are right and i feel surprice i have this score.
I would like get better result and get feeling a savely laptop
Well,i have no knowledge about firewall and setting but by default i have :
Remove any firewall rules that may have been created for the leak test.
Place CIS in Proactive Defense → right-click the icon, select Configuration/Comodo - Proactive Security.
While testing the products, you might see some internet explorer windows opened.
Until the tests are finished, DO NOT close them manually.
Otherwise you might get wrong results.
Vista x64 If you fail test 7, UserInit, add
to D+ My Protected Registry Keys.
i did make something wrong because i got my laptop out off control (authorization message) so i need to format OS HD and 3 day to install all .
Sorry but i am getting in confusing , just to try to clear about configuration…
Rules i have to write down on Internet Security but for this test i have to change in Proactive Security.
What it means ??
Is Cis using all setting in ones or depending off configuration it’s works ??
Still 30/340 my result
By default, CIS (more specifically Defense+) comes crippled. How? Defense+ is not installed with full protection. The best thing to do is, after you install it, right click with your mouse over the CIS icon, then Configuration - Comodo Proactive Security.
Now, do you need to reformat your machine just because of the test?
i had to reformat HD because i cannot use laptop ,
everything i do i get ‘‘no authoritazion allowed’’ or another message i don’t remember.
It start after i did something wrong with proactive set.
You sayd i have to write all rules on this configuration ???
here is my leak test results with CIS latest version, default settings------ 50/340. (each and every pop ups blocked during tests).
Mr. Melih, CIS with default settings is a threat for majority of users i.e 70-80% users who use default settings. default settings should be decent and effective coz majority of users rely on default settings. 50/340 dont you think these default settings needs a lot of improvements. wot say guyz !!!
