Definition Updates

I am quite happy with Comodo after reading recommendations. I used ISS Black Ice Defender previously and they often issued firewall definition updates. This doesn’t seem to happen that often with Comodo. I’d liked to be re-assured that the firewall is robust and that lack of updates do not compromise security.


If it ain’t broke - don’t fix it. :wink:

CFP will generally only receive updates to its safelist database. The core application is quite solid and I’m not aware of a program update for quite a while now.

Ewen :slight_smile:

??? I have never had any updates at all is this the norm thanks

It is absolutely normal not to receive “updates” with CFP. As panic has noted, the safelist will update, but that’s only if it is set to do so (it’s not by default, I think) - Security/Advanced/Miscellaneous.

Other than that, there aren’t updates unless a newer version comes out. The next version will be v3, and that is probably another month or two down the road.
