Please note important update regarding certificate which may be relevant.

I was under the impression that KillSwitch only displays trusted for a file if it is trusted by hash. Is this not true?

Interesting thought

AFAIK not in the integrated version, anyway, unless you have been told differently by devs?

Would be confusing for users…

QA are treating these blank ratings as bugs anyway, as they are enquiring about them.

But thanks for moving and checking by bugs and reports, Chiron. A sanity check is really helpful.

So easy to miss stuff…


I have not been told differently.

Thank you very much for your report in standard format, with all information supplied. The care you have taken is much appreciated by Comodo, and will increase the likelihood that this bug can be fixed.

Developers may or may not communicate with you in the forum or by PM/IM, depending on time availability and need. Because you have supplied complete information they may be able to replicate and fix the bug without doing so.

Many thanks again.

Can you please check and see if this is fixed with the newest version? Please let us know whether it is fixed or you are still experiencing the problem.

Thank you.

On testing a few days ago, marked in tracker as a partial fix. Procmon32 gets a rating now, Procmon64, which it seems is unpacked from *32 directly into memory does not.

So leave open I think.

Best wishes


Can you please check and see if this is fixed with the newest version (6.2.282872.2847)? Please let us know whether it is fixed or you are still experiencing the problem.

Thank you.

PM sent.

Fixed in 2847

Thanks for checking this.

I’ll move this report to Resolved.
