    Here I was wondering why it's been a while since our last bit of Comodo drama. :rolleyes: Quality humour.

    I think he was being sarcastic in hinting that the resellers don't use D+ to protect their servers.

    Everytime there is serious news about Comodo (e.g. on trustworthy newssites, no dodgy messages by Melih or whatever he is called) it enforces my opinion that I never ever want to use any Comodo product since the company is not trustworthy.

    They need to improve their firewall, and other server protection. I wonder if they're using their client products on servers.

    As per the mod, comodo resellers are not owned/manged by comodo. Thats just an another company which sells comodo certificates.

    So Comodo is trying to say that this website is not a part of them? Yet it has the Comodo logo plain as day.

    I smell a rat.:D

    OMG a Resellers Web Server Got hacked.....and? who cares it has nothing to do with Comodo....so unless you were an employee at the resellers in Brazil you have nothing to worry about....Period!

    ~ Off Topic Comment Removed ~ Download BackTrack and you can test out your own Web Server security setup you think is impenetrable, that is if you have a Web Server?

    What is a Reseller? Your answer is in the quote below...Originally Posted at Comodo Forums.

    Last time they got cracked by the Iranian Government. Was after the Stuxnet saga. Maybe they were looking to sign some windows files for a counter worm like Jmicron and Realtek ones did.

    lmao you guys serious? Comodo Reseller.

    Who gives a **** about some random company that's only affiliation with Comodo is that they purchased their products? This has nothing to do with Comodo as a company.

    Yes there has been enough drama with their CEO that you don't have to manufacture stuff like this that isn't there. :D
