Although I see that “Questions regarding development of CIS” Comodo Forum has been locked, I post this here since this is ‘General Discussion,’ allowing “Anything & everything”…
Perhaps this Theory has already been posted there. (I didn’t do a search. Sorry.)
Update: A mention of it. https://forums.comodo.com/news-announcements-feedback-cis/when-can-we-expect-a-new-version-comodo-internet-security-premium-merged-topic-t125578.0.html;msg903462#msg903462 (Sorry, I can’t figure out how to link text using the Insert Hyperlink shortcut in this forum.)
It occurs to me that the US Govt might be the reason that Comodo development stopped.
Remember how, in the Snowden release, the NSA complained that Comodo was too good?
Well, what if the US Govt offered money to - or threatened - or both - the developers of CIS? That would explain the sudden stoppage.
Naturally, the developers would be “ordered” to not tell anyone.
Does that sound too Conspiratorial?
Well, there’s a famous clip of Linus Tovalds at a public presentation talking about Linux. Someone in the audience asked him if the U.S. Govt had approached him, asking him to put a back door in Linux. (This was after Snowden.)
He shook his head “yes,” while answering “No.”
