    I thought that this warranted a fresh thread all of its own. I had a discussion with Melih (Comodo CEO) yesterday and brought to his attention the need for Kiosk to be resistant to sophisticated TDSS\TDL infections, and TDL4/Alureon in particular.

    In true Melih fashion he then tested it himself and came back later to report that Kiosk has managed to contain TDL4/Alureon! This is great stuff from Comodo! :thumb:

    This is great! :thumb:

    I hope CIS 6 with the Virtual Kiosk will be as light on my comps as its current version.

    yup it needs to be light, otherwise I will be disabling lots of shields.

    Yeah sounds great. Lets see it though so we can verify. A throwaway line from someone with a clear vested interest cannot be trusted yet.

    Whole thing looks like it has great potential though.

    I was hoping for system-wide virtualization with Kiosk. What we got is an enhanced sandbox.

    Kiosk is a nice addition to the CIS package, very useful for people who don't know what Sandboxie is (which is the vast majority of 'vanilla' computer users out there).

    Valid point there Chris, however I can't imagine that the Comodo CEO would lie in a public forum, especially over something so important. In any case, I'll test the thing myself as soon as the final comes out.

    Of course Solar, I'll share results on final release, both in here and in the Comodo forum.
