How do you know a program is really safe?

When a program is submitted to Comodo for analasis, how thoroughly is it checked to make sure it isn’t actually malware? And who has the final say if it’s safe or not. What if a disagreement arises?

Given Comodo’s Default Deny policy, does it matter? After all, if languy99 is right, then:
"the AV in comodo is nothing more then something to reduce pop ups. It is not needed to offer full protection. But for the sake of usability it is there. "

i think the topic opener wants to use his computer with things… apart from running just a single default deny program :wink:

in this moment there is a need for an antivirus. because if you want to run something, you should know if its safe.
the default deny policy is only for things, which are not wanted to be run.

What I’m asking is, for example, I download a program and try to install it, and it’s not in Comodo’s safe list, so I send the file to Comodo for analysis and wait for a response. What I want to know is How does Comodo then determine if it’s good or bad?

It depends on how it is submitted for analysis.

If it is autosubmitted by cloud scanning, then it is autoanalysed by CIMA in a fully emulated environment. This is sort of like a behaviour blocker type arrangement.

If it is manually submitted, then it is manually analysed by techs at Comodo.
