Windows 7: Weird email from Comodo

It has become even more weird. Going to comod.com now gives you a site in Russian.
Nothing by Sedo any longer.

Yeah Franz this seems to be getting a touch "complicated" as you can see in the attachment my Kaspersky has picked it up as a grey ref and it quotes hylocomod too. The language looks to me to be Czech or Polish - no correction it's Turkish have just done a Google translate.

I might just get onto the Comodo forum and ask as this thing is bordering on deceptive to the unwary eh?

I've had emails in the past claiming to be from various companies (can't remember which ones) which looked fishy. The pattern was often something along the lines of "click here to upgrade to pro/ultimate/whatever for free". Sometimes it was for software I had never even heard of. On occasion they would even mail me an "invoice" showing the regular price (usually something high, like $89.95) with the Total Due marked "Paid In Full". My guess is that they were expecting people to assume they had made a mistake and then go download something free in a hurry before the company discovered their error. I'd bet that the download was some "free" software you don't really want - like a virus or trojan.

I never clicked any of them and they were all scams. I'm betting some crooks got hold of the name of someone who genuinely works at Comodo and are using it as bait.

Hum reckon you're right too mate as the main office confirmed th existence of that fellow and I don't swallow the explanation that it must have been a typo - I mean a large company like that?? Even I have spellcheck!

Don't remember if i mentioned this, but if I put my "hacker's brain processes" mind in, I would account for the people that are smart enough to try my previously mentioned suggestion, I'd learn the name and email of an ACTUAL REAL WORLD employee/salesman in the company and get a copy of their exact emails, then it's a simple email sender spoof. (even if it would cost the hacker signing up for an account to get this type of info, it would be well worth it for the many times they could scam someone!) Remember they're Evil Geniuses.....everyone seems to focus on the evil part. expect them to be one step ahead.

(alright switching back to "regular brain processes" mind....okay, there!)

Wow look at that thought I just had above!

Go to the Comodo forum and see what they advise. It's your best bet. I am sure Comodo keeps an eye on that forum, as Microsoft is most likely doing it here. It would be stupid not to.

That linkedin account may be a fake too. Who checks what you put down there as information?
Who checks or would be able to check on this forum whether the info given is right? I could put anything down (that's why i deleted mine). No offence but that's the way it is.

I guess what I'm getting at, or maybe misunderstanding here is what is the problem exactly? Did you send "sensitive" info to this person or worried about what may have happened during the email exchange I think you did with "him?" Maybe just curiosity?

If there's nothing to worry about as of yet from a security standpoint, simply block the address and purchase the software I assume you plan to purchase by contacting comodo through THEIR website. Or whatever interactions you intend on having, initiate the communication yourself.

Yes it would be the "right thing to do" to drop a message and/or forum post referencing this potential problem to the company. Then they can do with it as they do in their own way, (can't MAKE them act noble I suppose.)
