    Any way that you look at that, it ain't good for Comodo's reputation.

    I wonder if Comodo's software detects that kind of malware ? :rolleyes:

    'trust is everything in the security business'

    There are many security vendors that exhibit rogue features.
    The ask.com toolbar, Symantec's affiliation with IAC and having their paid support using MBAM, bad privacy policies, auto-renewal issues, vendors that completely rewrite their program during a subscription and refuse refunds, etc.

    Let's not go swinging this into a bash fest ;)

    I think every company makes mistakes, but just those who listen to their users and clean up the mess are the real security vendors. If Comodo can redeem itself, I think there is no reason why people should not feel secure with it.

    ...And as they say "You're only as secure as you feel."

    Except that here we have Comodo again, selling security certificates to the very same bad guys from last month's episode. Really speaks volumes about the quality of their verification processes when all it took to find out the owner of the domains was a simple Google search... or their willingness to consort with malware writers for some easy cash.

    And Comodo even offers a "Secure DNS" service. Who knows what they're doing with that one, I wouldn't be surprised to see a report that Comodo is redirecting 404 requests to ad/malware domains. Stay tuned.

    Yep even if Comodo CIS works well, Comodo has shown it is not to be trusted.

    If this is true then CIS does have an advantage over the other security suites.
    Since Comodo will already know who the baddies are, they can quickly and easily put them in the CIS blocklist, making CIS the ultimate protection available.

    Comodo has been important for other companies improve their products, but now we already know what were the real intent of Comodo...

    What is incredible is that here still exist users that still believe on this great lie...
    Just think a bit! ;)

    We have better products out there, also for free... ;)

    Fun is over. We don't need another rehash of this.
