... It is pretty silly to ask comodo if they're spyware, do you really think they will say yes? ...

I'll tell you what's silly, making accusations without any real EVIDENCE ...  ;)  ::)

Hello everyone,

Kevin was one of the orginal creators of BOClean, which means he was the programmer before Comodo bought out BOClean.. He would not have sold BOClean if he thought Comodo was going to taint the product's name ::)

Thanks Justin. I've asked you about this in a thread in Comodo forum but the Moderator locked the thread...

Yes he locked the thread but he did give you the link for the main topic discussing this issue (even in the avast forums we try to have people post in relevant threads where possible) in which you could ask the question if it hadn't already been answered in that.

Cruising other threads on the wilders forum brings you to read that CF is not the only firewall being "crucified": (QUOTE)
Whenever I review/post about a firewall, I post info on this (I always have), it is not just a case of IF a firewall calls home, it is also if a firewall can call home without popup/knowledge to the user (Hard_coded rules). As simple example, if we look at ZA, its main process "vsmon", have you ever attempted to create rules for this process, or even attempted to place this in the application list,... you cannot, and vsmon is able to make whatever connections. This was the process that did make the outbound connections (the call home). Now dont get me wrong, I know I have been accused of attacking ZA due to this, but I will report any such findings of ANY firewall/ security application that I find connects out, or is able to connect out without user knowledge/warning/logging.

As for the choice between ZA and OP pro,.. my personal choice between the 2 would be OP pro, not just based on the hard_coded rules, but also by the reported (and my own findings) of problems. ??? (QUOTE- WILDERS- OTHER FIREWALLS... by STEM  August 5th, 2007, 01:19 PM)
Had to say that with CF at least my internet speed improved a lot better than with ZAP ;D

Hello Tech,

Justin, what I want is an official position of the Comodo staff, maybe here. Can't they do it?

I've forwarded this information to Melih (CEO of Comodo). We will see what he can do, but there are no guarantees...

No problem, just sent the message to Melih, give him some time, I am sure either him or somebody else will respond.

Hi folks,

I think some people are really getting paranoid here, because there is so much commercial and governmental data retention going around (for obvious Big Brother reasons and monopolistic Big Corporational control) they think everything and everyone is in on this game, and really start barking at the wrong tree here. Because they are becoming transparant and do not object to it where it really matters, they start seeing ghosts on the wall (firewall here  ;D where they do not exist, that means the fearmongering actually works, the FUD has sunken in!
Your firewall and anti malware protection should be your best of friends in this matter, not your enemies.

I see more people complaining they don't have enough protection on their PC, installing to much security software can over kill your computer it can do more damaging.

Nobody on earth cannot tell you which is the best software firewall, just find the software firewall that suit you and does the job well easy for you understand and operator to control the in and outbound traffic.

The person behind the computer has to learn to LOOK :o at the software and the settings carefully, before you start cruising in other forum website and making Comodo a bad firewall which is not good.

The more you keep this up and cruising the staff at Comodo and on their forum website support and in here on Avast forum it not good, those people at Comodo who work so hard with so much support and ideas to create a really good software firewall.

There are some people in here I've seen are supporting Comodo like Justin for example, and to make it grow toward the future and their software marketing.

I'm NOT (sorry didn't edit this sooner) complaining about Comodo firewall and I can always learn from my mistake behind the firewall software settings, IF I see a problem that I'm not sure how to solve it I don't start cruising and making Comodo a bad firewall.

Their people in here and at Comodo support forum website can help you, and some people in here who don't have a problem using Comodo if you have a problem just ask............it not very hard to ask help if you have a problem........or are you plain DUMB!
