Comodo CIS has always hated “DemoScene” productions [“intelligent code alert - TERMINATE!!!”] and I’ve always had to wrestle such from its grasp, but now I have a new issue:-
Comodo is behaving like Mcf** or Nrt*n MALWARE!
[I tried them in ignorance, back in '97, and both tried their utmost to ravage and destroy my OS environment]
Despite the usual idiotic GeekBuddy alert (which I only leave enabled because I don’t trust it to automatically allow ME to deal with MY situation, where I wouldn’t receive the option to choose from the provided buttons) I get the usual Isolation* alert, followed by the option to make a rule and report the false alert.
When returning to the folder, I notice MY files are being deleted without consent.
To my knowledge, COMODO DIDN’T USED TO DO THIS!
Where this happens, I must unzip the archive again and, thus naturally (in the order of closing potential loopholes in security),
they are treated as different files and I have to go through the whol procedure again - with Comodo IGNORING MY CHOICES and deleting the file again.
Naturally, I have the resident running anti-virus switched off as I don’t get viruses because I’m not a fool and, thus, I don’t want my system crippled and failing in the name of false-flag “security”.
However, I do leave it installed in case I want to manually scan individual files - which it actually does very poorly, since files I know to extract into something malicious are often not detected - unlike the benign “Scene” prods which prompted this post!
The question is:-
- Which option have I ham-fistedly enabled in error?
- Did Comodo enable something by default, without my knowledge?
In which case, I should begin to show concerns about this suite in the manner that I previously did with Mcf** and Nrt*n, and begin to search for alternatives.
It’s bad enough with MS’ increasing “nanny” behaviour, considering all the profiling they attempt (to send to CERN [a larger, much nastier, story]) without user knowledge, WHICH I CONSIDER GENUINE MALICIOUS ATTACKS and do all I know to prevent.
In the meantime (before reasoning is made clear) and in short:-
HOW DO I PREVENT COMODO BEHAVING AS MALWARE AND DELETING MY FILES?
As an aside:
I did notice that Comodo had reported it looked up a particular file online and found it to be malicious - where I know it is not.
I never used to have a problem with look-ups.
Is this a product of this new VirusScope, as opposed to the previous look-up?
If so, I’ll need to disable VirusScope as well as the resident running AntiVirus.
Sorry if my directness causes negative reaction.
I am an Aries individual: Intelligent, thorough (as currently aware) impatient, and don’t consider emotional reaction when it comes making and stressing a valid point.
TIA, in hope of a prompt solution - for I have a computer to USE.
ps. I do appreciate that the nature of much Scene prod’ coding and compression methods could be used to obfuscate malware - and expect this to cause files to be flagged - what I don’t need is MY CHOICES IGNORED, as that would be deemed by anyone with a still-functioning mind as malicious behaviour in itself.
*I also find an annoyance regarding the isolation process in general:-
Despite being allowed to choose the fate of the file for the future, it’s already too late in this original instance, which, where initially isolated pre-user intervention, has already caused dependency issues - and likely failure to run - of the software which invoked the specific file, requiring that program to be terminated and run again with new rules in place.
I accept that this may be due to unavoidable ordering for (again) genuine closing of potentially exploitatable aspects.
