Myrti,

Is that info still true for today? I noticed the 2009 dating on it. The reason I ask is because I am a Comodo user.

Hi,

the second link is from 2011, even though it covers a different issue. The links in general say little about the quality of the AV and loads about the attitude of the company. They'll take their business wherever they can get it.
The issues however never had anything to do with the AV or the firewall of Comodo, but with the other areas of business they work in.

regards myrti
