Well done Comodo

I would just like to post my thanks to the Comodo team.

I’m very careful about which sites I go to download software and very rarely get any kind of pops ups from my anti virus, however upon hearing of the sad death of Karen Kenworthy (of karenware.com fame) I decided it would be a good idea to go download all her superb freeware before the site inevitably went offline.

When I started downloading files (from this previously always safe site) Comodo started warning me of infected files (Virus.Win32.Parite.gen), at first I though it must be false positive so I (took it from quarantine) and uploaded it to VirusTotal, the screen went almost all red, all the major AV’s picked up it had a problem, expect a few

Panda, Qihoo-360…and very worryingly Malwarebytes and Superantispyware !! missed it this shows the need for a multi layered approach I guess.

I suspect karenware.com has been taken over by shall we say, a less honest person(s) !!

But anyway thank you comodo for providing a free effective solution, good care about sites you visits sometimes just isn’t enough to protect you.
