Completely Comodo

Hi Comodo Forum users,

I am now completely relying on Comodo Products and use all available Comodo Desktop products, just see my signature.

Also see my post on the avast! user forums about changing to comodo.

My Post at the avast! user forums can be viewed HERE

Warm Regards,

Hi Justin1278,

As another avast! user who switched to Comodo myself, I have to say I agree with your post on the avast! forums.
I also have started using Comodo as my main protection and know I will never go back with how these products are developing and the way in which Comodo staff and the CEO Melih are so active to respond to users’ posts.

Thank you Mike,

I have 1 request it is your choice to fulfill it or not. Do you think you could post your comments in my post in the avast! forums? As you saw with my post, I have nothing against the users, it is just how some of them act, and how Alwil supports people, I payed $40 for avast! Professional and I can’t call avast! because I am not a commercial user! I am just a Home user who bought the pro program. I have nothing against the users so I left my e-mail so they can contact me if they need support.

Yes justin1278, I would be more than happy to do that - I’ll do it straight away.

Mike

Thank you very much Mike :D.

Is the AV really ready for prime time at this point?

Hi justin, I also have read your post at avast! forums. I too don’t post very often but do still read on a regular basis.I also have a valid license for the pro version of avast that isn’t being used.I won’t give details here as to why I’m not using it anymore.
I wish you well here with the forums and mainly the great products. Tim

Tim,

I don’t plan on using avast! again, I gave my pro license away to a buddy so it will be used and not wasted. I will check up on the forum members, after all I don’t have anything against the members.

Justin

I can’t put my hand on heart say its the best AntiVirus! It still needs improvement and we know what we need to improve. Weekly basis its getting better and better! and It won’t stop getting better!

Melih

Comodo is doing their best to collect more and more virus samples and add them to Comodo Antivirus. Give it some time ;).

Justin

Justin, a surprise to read what you said over at Avast and here. I think you are correct though and I am expecting great things from Comodo over the next year.

David.

CAV only has a total 27% Detection Rate from av-comparatives.org (see here). It’s not exactly a full antivirus yet. I only recommend CAV to my tech friends who like to test out stuff.

I agree that CAV is not a full AV yet. But even with the well-known antivirus products you will never have a total protection.

The only 3 ways to achive it are:

  1. use a virtual machine when you navigate or
  2. use “abtrusion protector” or
  3. use linux and not windows

As they have stated though you will see increasing virus updates over the next few weeks as they bring these updates online.

Hi,

We all know Comodo doesn’t have good detection, I am constantly sending in new virus samples, I actaully “hunt” down malware and send it to them which is always added. We are here to help, Melih has a complete team working on the Antivirus, and I am sending in at least 1 new sample each day! Since I started I have currently sent in 8 and am already working on Virus # 9 which will be ready soon. Oh, I have acquired a virus that most antivirus programs don’t even detect! major antivirus products such as Symantec, avast!, etrust, dr. Web, and many more don’t even detect this new virus threat, but Comodo does because people like me hunt down the new malware threats and send them in, although it may be 27% now don’t expect it to be that low anymore, each day with our help Comodo gets better and better detection. Our goal is to get Comodo’s detection unmatched!!!

Justin

Hello Justin!

When I get time, I will compact all my samples and send to you… ;D

I will test comodo against these samples and send the undetected to them too…

I already sent 3, yesterday, but unfortunatly they are still not detected…

Worse, 2 false positives still being detected (they were send with the 3 undetected samples)

Thanks for your time,

Elminster

Hi,

I am guessing Melih has been very busy today, he has not gotten back to me on my e-mails. That would be great, how many samples are you sending me?

Regards,

Justin

Elminster

Pls send us all the samples you have, also pls tell us which files we false detect.
we will try to fixe them asap and upload the new signatures for the samples.

Thank you for your efforts Elminster

Melih

Lol,

Melih, he is the person I was talking about, I gave him your e-mail, so you should recieve his samples shortly.

Regards,

Justin

Hello!

For Justin

The zipped file that I have is 36 MB and contains 156 samples (worms,trojan bankers,dialers, etc)

Should I send to you by email? Or do you prefer by another way?

For Melih:

I tested against my samples againts Comodo: result → from 156 samples, 26 were detected… (Not bad for who is building a malware database)

The zip that I created with undetected samples are 33 MB, how should I send to you? By email too?
Also I will send the 2 false positives and the 3 trojan bankers.

Thanks for your time,

Elminster
