A. THE BUG/ISSUE: Firerwall Custom Policy Mode broke in the Version 5.12
What you did: Updated CIS from Version 5.10 to 5.12
What actually happened or you actually saw: Firewall in Custom Policy Mode broke. Custom Policy Mode does not alert to any applications at all and those applications that access the net are immediately trusted. It is like the Firewall is off.
What you expected to happen or see:
How you tried to fix it & what happened: Reinstall Comodo Internet Security. I fixed it with staying on Version 5.10 but this should not be the point.
If a software compatibility problem have you tried the compatibility fixes (link in format)?:
Details & exact version of any software (execpt CIS) involved (with download link unless malware):
Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so precise steps to make it happen:
I’m just posting this to provide confirmation of the existence of this problem in the latest version. I’ve upgraded a few days ago and I’ve been going nuts reinstalling and reconfiguring Comodo Firewall because of it.
I’m glad I’ve read this too, because I already had my mind set to give up on Comodo after years using it and go for a different firewall product, least this be a new “feature” instead of a bug. Reverting to 5.10 until this is fixed.
Still, I’ll be VERY cautious about upgrading this product in the future. This is not just some minor glitch but a major, wide-level flaw affecting everyone’s security and privacy as soon as they install this latest version, it shouldn’t have been released to the public in this state and it raises questions about QA testing.
