    Okay, I found some info myself

    HIPS

    At installation of new release, Comodo HIPS will check all executables on your harddrive it will check the Comodo white list data base and will check the cyptographic hash with the value stored in the white list.

    When installing new programs a look up call will be generate to check whether it matches the white list db value. When a program is not listed you will have to ask Comodo (this will problably be a much more sphisticated or automated procedure).

    It looks like the same protection SpywareTerminator offers with the additional assurance that it will check the cryptographic hash (to check some malware has tampered this executable).


    Virtualization
    Still have not found info

    Hey, sorry for the late reply.
    I don't think there's an official link to future features. The forum is where they reveal that.
    I guess you've checked here.
    I'll see if i can find another topic.

    No bugs - sure.

    As for HIPS. Thats great but anyone find anything as to collecting all that HIPS information into one analysis log? Now, that would be great.

    Off to Comodo world...
