Hi Guys! Just a simple and very easy suggestion to implement in the next and upcoming versions of CAV and CIS,
Enhance the context menu options, I noticed since version 3, Comodo’s Right click scan only works for actual files and not shortcuts, Wouldn’t it be more convenient if Comodo would tweak it to scan shortcuts also? It’s also the same for the Run in Sandbox option. I hope that this will be considered. Thank you.
A shortcut isn’t an .exe or the target file it is only a pointer to a target, and once a shortcut is activated it is designed to execute the target. Therefore if won’t scan the shortcut, and for you to scan the exe from the shortcut the shortcut would have to be activated somehow to find the exe. Once the shortcut is activated the target will be executed, whether it be an .exe to a program or an URL to a website. Hope this makes sense. Kind regards.
Edit- Similar for the sandbox, it will only show up for a file that is executable in some way.
Example- you will not get sandbox option on opening a word document, but you will sandbox option on opening winword.exe file.
Are they scanning and sandboxing the shortcuts target or just the .lnk file? If they found a way to reach the target it would be useful. If it is just the .lnk I don’t see much benefit from it. Kind regards.
