People, from time to time, don't know why, try to bash security companies that release free products. People don't understand how can a company survive giving one product by free to home users. This is an endless story.
If you don't trust your security company. Change it.
You can trust Alwil and Comodo companies imho.

The caps lock key appears to be stuck on your keyboard whilst writing newspaper style headlines for Topic Titles, there is no need to shout.

Many forum users used to use PC Tools and switched to comodo and this was because of security issues not one of perceived privacy issues.

Personally I would have waited until the conclusion of the topics you gave (broken) links to before creating the newspaper headlines.

Edit: You ought to check out this topic as we get some information/answers direct from the horses mouth so to speak, Melih the owner/main man I believe.

Fear Uncertainty and Doubt

Quote
Fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) is a sales or marketing strategy of disseminating negative (and vague) information on a competitor's product. The term originated to describe disinformation tactics in the computer hardware industry and has since been used more broadly. FUD is a manifestation of the appeal to fear.

Well, for all of this hype about Comodo Firewall it sure is just a simple answer. If you don't trust it, don't use it. There are other choices for any of us to go to. Whether you pay for one or choose a free one is entirely up to your choices.  :)

BoClean is a comodo product.  BoClean calls out to theplanet.com.

It appears comodo fw, comodo boclean & theplanet.com are "dirty".

I see...
But is this real or just a hoax or FUD as posted before?
What is 'call' in this situation? Is Comodo a spyware? ???

Tech,

When you make a telephone call you voice is transmitted over the phone lines.

So when comodo "calls" out it transmits out data.

It appears it is spyware.

If it is indeed spyware then cpf isn't free, your surfing pays for it.

There is a link to PC Tools Fw in my sig below for you to enjoy safe, free surfing.
