I didn’t install the antivirus from comodo.
Sandbox is disabled.
Defense+ is disabled.
Only firewall is enabled, on safe mode
Then why comodo bother me from time to time, by telling me that a file , might be a malware ?
I just want comodo to work as a firewall, I already have my antivirus, and I’m not interested by false alerts.
Hey and warm welcome to comodo forums:)
the firewall has cloud scanner. What file are we talk about?
I strongly recommend you to have defense+ and all of its features on. If defense+ gives you a hard time please post and people will help you.
Enjoy your stay here at comodo.
what a fast reply.
What file are we talk about?Well, it's often exe that are packed with upx, aspack or whatever. Usually, not very legal stuff downloaded on the net, sorry.
I strongly recommend you to have defense+ and all of its features onWell, I remind that defense+ was conflicting with microsoft security essential, making the browsing with firefox, unbearably slow. I don't know if the issue has been fixed, will try again.
add MSE in detect shellcode injection and this is how you do it; CIS —> Defense+ —> Defense+ Settings —> Execution control Settings —> Detect shellcode injections (i.e. Buffer overflow protection) —> Exclusions —> Add —> Browse…
add MSE in detect shellcode injection and this is how you do it; CIS ---> Defense+ ---> Defense+ Settings ---> Execution control Settings ---> Detect shellcode injections (i.e. Buffer overflow protection) ---> Exclusions ---> Add ---> Browse...
But I think that MSE , is well known, and should be supported “out of the box” , by comodo firewall.
The cloud scanner had nothing to do with the firewall. I recommend you to download malwarebytes and hitman pro. When you’re done with the scans tell me what they found
P.S don’t forget to update Malwarebytes and make a quick scan
When you don’t use the av of CIS but use the cloud look up you will get notified when something is a (possible) virus. Comodo considers this an extra service to the user. It is hard coded.
I recommend you to download malwarebytes and hitman pro. When you're done with the scans tell me what they foundWell, why not. I've done a full scan with Malwarebytes, after updating it. Only main C partition, or it would be too long. Malwarebytes found nothing.
However , I’ve then scanned file that was detected as problematic by Comodo (on an other partition). Malwarebytes say it is infected by “trojan.agent.ck”.
I believe it’s fine.
You can see a more detailed report at virustotal.
The problem is probably because the exe was compressed by PECompact according to Virustotal.
Then I’ve done a scan with “hitman pro”. This one found a lot of “tracking cookie”.
A patch.exe file, I forgot to delete was detected as:
“high risk worm”
Well , I notice the word “generic”, and I just suspect an other false alarm.
Otherwise, the software I’ve patched , was detected as having an invalid digital signature (off course).
When you unpack the file, that is packed with a packer most av solutions don’t seem to like, and upload the .exe to VT. What do the scanners say then? I have seen the judgments change notably.
To get rid off the CIS av alerts from the cloud I guess it is best to simply install the av, disable it from on access scanning, remove the scheduled scans and add the flagged files to the AV Exclusions.

I have seen the judgments change notably.Well, just for curiosity's sake, I've found a working unpacker for the file that Comodo has detected with the "cloud" , and then uploaded the uncompressed exe at virustotal. You can [url=http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report.html?id=a3ea7defba0ac86eb18046018b543de36008a46323e1c68484852ded30030d22-1294366324]see results here[/url]. Few alerts, but not from the most popular av , and I usually rely on NOD32 & Kasperky, and no alert from them.
To get rid off the CIS av alerts from the cloud I guess it is best to simply install the av, disable it from on access scanning, remove the scheduled scans and add the flagged files to the AV ExclusionsOk, I think, I rather keep the default cloud behavior, and exclude files, each time there's a problem. I was just expecting a firewall, to not behave like an antivirus.
