Comodo's Database

I have sent in trojans and viruses detected by Bitdefender,
Antivir and Kaspersky to Comodo’s labs, but they do not
appear to have been taken up in the database updates.

As mentioned in my earlier posts, Comodo’s virus database
appears inadequate, and it continues to miss many malwares.
In fact, it failed to detect another two yesteday which were caught
by Bitdefender and Antivir, when they tried to execute from this
“TorrentQ” program I had downloaded and installed.

Here’s a Virus Total scan of a Java trojan which Comodo missed.
I have also sent it in.

[ notes ]
Prevx info:

This is a jave Archive (.jar) file. Currently CAV does not unachive .jar files and hence it is not detected. But whenever this .jar file is unarchived for uses, CAV will detect them.

In future we we will add .jar unarchiver in CAV.
