I have received NO updates for the past 17hrs, is that normal? Why does Comodo not provide hourly updates like most other security software?
I guess there is no rush as there is no new malware as such! :o
You are right. I have not gotten an update for 16 hours. Not sure why.
New malware pops up every 2 seconds - hourly updates are essential to keep up with modern day threats. Why does Norton, Kaspersky, Bitdefender update (sometimes every 15-30 minutes), however, Comodo takes over 17hrs?
Ususally I get updates more like every 6 hours. Anyway, there is the heuristics and the auto-sandbox. To protect yourself use the Kiosk also.
Have you forgotten the cloud based signatures that are instantly updated with new CIMA’s detections ? as well as other components running on backend… ?
Is there some way to see if connection to the cloud is possible or if connection is perhaps dropped/impossible?
If the issue is that Comodo just hasn’t issued a new database then the cloud will have you covered (As well as HIPS/BB) but if the issue is for example network based on Comodo’s end then that could possibly affect the cloud too?
That is true spy. Comodo is actually a cloud AV. Even the firewall acts like an antivirus.
What you can do in order to check if cloud AV is working or not, download a malware pack from malwaretips, disable AV and put all files in Unrecognized files tab. Then do an usual cloud lookup on all these files, if you see malware verdicts coming, that means that cloud is greatly working. I just launched a cloud lookup on some samples, and it is actually working.
Just got the update. Database Version 17764.
Situation got stable much faster than the past…
Considering CIS is free I think Comodo is good about giving signature updates regularly.
That’s why I trust in proactive approach with Sandbox/HIPS and not detection. No company can keep up with that. Other than that there is of course the cloud av to mitigate to get new definitions to the users.
I dont want updates more often than max twice a day. (Or in cases where i think, better safe than sorry, manually).
Thats why i use a host intrusion protection function like comodo.
Same for avoiding scanning the whole drive.
Dont want to know how often i let a faulty update pass by with this habit
