What is the End of Life date for Firewall V3.14 ??
Cant get V4.1 to operate \ install properly on Win XP Pro SP3
despite trying all the fixes\uninstall\cleanup tips listed on this forum
(thanks to various posters) & so have reverted to V3.14.147648.588.
Have searched the forum & web and cant’ see a definite statement on this.
When will using V 3.14 become a security problem ??
If using CAV, you won’t be able to update the virus base, as automatic update won’t work anymore, unless there’s some manual trick (i have no idea, i use an other AV).
If not, i don’t see what’s the problem, and i would even say there’s less issue with cis3 then with versions 4 and 5 at the time speaking, due to erratic behavior of the sandbox and trusted files/vendors.
The only known issue with that version and Firewall is some ARP poisoning issue that got fixed in later version.
But if you only run Firewall there is nothing to be afraid of like brucine suggests.
The Firewall and D+ are even more stable and faster then in 3.x releases, but I do agree that sandboxing is still a young product, if you run an other AV next to FW there should be no issues of that kind.
Regarding EOL date normal software releases support N+1 so only version 4.x will be AV updated as 5.x is released, but normally Comodo handles the support only the latest version method. So only v5 will see fixes.
