1. What actually happened or you saw:

Some competitor programs have “Wallet” feature that stores sensitive data (passwords, credit card details, etc) securely and blocks transmission of that data anywhere except to user-specified websites. so if a trojan somehow enters the system it could not transfer sensitive data somewhere else.

The feature also prevents sensitive data stored by various Internet-enabled applications such as instant messengers, web browsers, e-mail clients and e-banking software from being compromised. Items such as cached/saved login details and passwords, configuration files, electronic wallet contents, etc., are protected from tampering and hijacking by unauthorized unrelated applications. So, for example, only the Yahoo! Messenger application would be able to retrieve a user’s personal Yahoo! Messenger credentials, only Internet Explorer would be granted access to IE cookie files, and so on.

  1. What you wanted to happen or see:

I want to see a similar feature and believe it will increase overall security dramatically and will benefit end users.

What’s the difference between “Virtual Desktop” and “Wallet” ?
Do note that you have to copy-paste the whole format, not just a part of it.

Thank you.

Thanks for your reply and question.

The difference is that Virtual Desktop is a secure environment where we can launch programs and browser in sandboxed mode.

The wallet, on the other hand, is a feature that allows us to store sensitive data and protect that data from leakage. For example we store a few passwords there (for example eBay, Yahoo mail, Amazon and Comodo forum) and define that only www.ebay.com, www.yahoo.com, www.amazon.com and forums.comodo.com websites can access that sensitive data. If we go to www.paypal.com and try to login there using one of the protected password the program will block the data and it won’t reach the paypal.com as paypal.com is not in the list of the sites that have access to sensitive data. This feature is useful for phishing sites and trojans; if we enter a phishing site by a mistake and type our credentials they guaranteed won’t leak. Likewise, if a trojan horse manage to enter our system somehow it won’t be able to send our passwords and other sensitive data away while we are typing them in browser. Furthermore, the wallet will also protect the data from being leaked via messengers (for example if we (or trojan) will try to send that sensitive data via Yahoo Massanger the wallet will block the data and it won’t be transferred as Yahoo Massanger is not in the list of programs that can access the sensitive data).

By implementing this feature we will add an extra layer of security that will help us from trojans and phishing sites.

They’re already working on something like that.
