Because I checked the box to receive few notifications when I set up my firewall.
I have been using Comodo firewall for more than 5 years, and I always did everything manually. Recently when I installed it on the current computer I use, I set the intaller to notify me as little as possible. I thought this means Comodo firewall would sort the programs and automatically apply rule sets for them, and would only ask me for input when a unknown/risky program doesn’t fit any of the existing rule sets, but this doesn’t seem to be the case
Today when I opened a p2p torrent application for the 1st time, there was 0 notification, and the program worked without asking me for any input. I had no idea which ruleset that the p2p application was running, this means other programs I might have run in the past was also doing the same thing because of my settings.
What exactly happens when a user chose to receive few notifications during install? Why does potential security risks like a p2p program not trigger a notification under this setting?
