Hey everyone, I want to start off by saying how pleased I am with all the Comodo products. I am elated that they are all free, that there is a full security suite for free, forever! To my question, I installed the AntiViruSpyware, the firewall and BOClean. I know what the firewall does and I’m presuming that I know what the AntiViruSpyware does by it’s name, but what is the BOClean? If AntiViruSpyware is spyware as well, then what use is BOClean? As far as I know, it doesn’t even scan on demand… It’s not like I don’t like the product, but I’m a security nerd and I’ve gone through a million products trying to find the best of the best, and I just like to know as much as I can about all the products I have running. Thanks a lot, have a great week!
I think you can find an answer to your question on the Comodo website :
Read it first, and than if you still have questions feel free to ask them here
What is BOClean?
One of the oldest & respected names in the business.
Melih pulled a coup on the industry when he picked it up. ;D
thanks to both of you for the replies. according to the two links that you posted, it can do pretty much anything, but is it able to do an on demand scan for all the things it can find, or does it have to detect them in real time?
No, CBO is not a scanner in the way you are thinking of.
CBO “scans” in real time as a memory resident, this is part of the beauty of it’s design.
Malware tends to cloak/hide it’s self from file scanners, in memory it is exposed for what it really is.
Cheep, cheesy repacks don’t fool CBO. If they want to try to get past CBO they have to spend the time and money to write completely new code… which is often still recognized by CBO.
once again, thank-you for your replies. I’m quite excited that Comodo is able to make products that are free and that can do things like this. I’m sold on all the Comodo products. I just wanted to try them because I had some freetime and had seen a good review for the CAVS. I’m now totally sold on all the products, the firewall, CAVS and this one, BOClean. (L) (M) (R)!
SEGMAT, you can compare it with the clasic story of Troy. The Trojan people only saw the wooden horse the Greeks left behind, they couldn’t see the solders hiding in it. And that is the same with a lot of malware. Very often it is packed in a way that tradional AV’s can’t regognise it, but BOClean watches carefuly if something bad comes out and destroys it
You are certainly most welcome!
Keep an eye on Comodo, they’re changing the face of the industry.
Im a little confused to as what Comodo BOClean : Anti-Malware Version 4.24 actually does. Can someone help me out! Would it be usfull for the PC?
Willas, I merged your thread here. There is no need to start multiple threads on the same question.
