Hello dear all,
I work in a non-profit hospital centre where I deal with sensitive patient data - and as a result of a new tech policy we need to put extra effort into making sure that no patient data is leaked to the outside.
This brings me to a problem with the latest Comodo Internet Security (however the problem exists in all previous versions as well). On a single computer that requires internet access I installed only the Firewall (with Maximum Defense+) and NOT the antivirus part.
I selected to NOT be a part of Threatcast, I am not using Comodo DNS, I unticked automatic checking for updates and I disabled the Sandbox (and also disabled sending unknown files to Comodo).
However, I still periodically see unknown attempts at connection coming from cmdagent.exe. When I whois the IP addresses that cmdagent.exe tries to access it brings me to Comodo servers. I have no idea what these connections contain, and I was not informed anywhere that Comodo would attempt to phone home despite having everything possible checked off.
Now, I appreciate the fact that Comodo lets me block these connections by setting cmdagent.exe to not be allowed to connect anywhere, however I would appreciate it if it was possible to make it so that Comodo does not connect anywhere by itself. All I am asking for is a simple checkbox in advanced settings, or a registry setting.
I do like comodo, but I cannot afford to have unknown connections going to the internet from it. Thank you.
By the way, I appreciate that Comodo no longer bundles other software with it, such as the Ask! toolbar, etc.
