Steam and other games trying to access Comodo process

Hi! I don´t know is this right area for this question but please move this topic to elsewhere if not.

When I watched what Comodo IS has done I noticed that Defence+ has blocked 44 intrusions and I was curious to find out what they are.

What I find out was that for example Steam, newest Medal of Honor and Call of Duty Black Ops have tried to access memory and target was c:program files\COMODO\COMODO Internet Security\cfp.exe. I´am wondering why Steam and those games are trying to do that? Why they would need to use/modify AV software process?

Also take a look for these images:

What the heck is it doing?

I tried to add Steam.exe to Defense+ trusted files but it told me that “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe is already a safe file”, even though it isn’t in the trusted files list.

That’s something that steam can only answer.

Hey and warm welcome to comodo forums Brod

What you see is normal; comodo is protecting itself, doesn’t matter if the application is safe or not. There is a way to grant steam access memory but I don’t suggest you do that.

Can you play? if you can then there is no need to worry :slight_smile: If you get cpu usage then please tell us so we know.

Thanks Valentin.

It doesn’t seem to be causing any issues. Just a bit disconcerting that it shows up as a ‘blocked intrusion’.

I can’t help but wonder why Steam is even trying to access Comodo…

Memory Access is a programming technique. It can be used by non malicious or malicious applications and as such is not n proof of malicious intent of a program.
