Windows 7: Security-problem with Comodo´s firewall & Defence+ !

Security-problem with Comodo´s firewall & Defence+ !

hi !

there seems to be a really BIG Security-problem with Comodo´s Firewall & Defence+.

last night i when running Comodo´s Leak-Test (CLT) i discovered that it´s NOT working as it should & as it used to do.
i only got 180 / 340 points !

OMG...

a complete disaster, although a-squared (now EAM) did a good job,
and detected 5 suspected activities that Comodo missed.

last time i checked with CLT i got 340/340, so there must be some problems.

last night i spent an hour checking all my settings & trying to improve the security, but nothing i did helped.
i´ve been working a few hours now, trying everything possible, but it´s still 180/340.

so if you are using Comodo´s Firewall & Defence+, the latest version 4.0.141842.828 from 12 April 2010, then i strongly suggest that you run CLT and check your own results !

i´m using Online Armor FREE now and i got 330/340 when running CLT.

i previously used Windows 7-beta, Windows 7-RC & Windows 7-Professional, when i tested Comodo with CLT.
now i´m running Windows 7-Enterprise 32-bit, but i also have both Vista & Windows Server 2008 installed, so i´m going to install Comodo on those 2 O/S´s just to verify that it isn´t Windows 7-Enterprise that is acting weird.

Wow! Coming from a "devout" Comodo fan, this is something.

well, if Comodo doesn´t provide the security, then it´s time to switch to something else....

i just checked my old emails, i seem to have licenses for both Online Armor Premium &
Online Armor ++.

OA++ = OA-premium & a-squared.

hmmm....

I wonder what changed with Comodo? I am a new users of comodo so I have no point of reference. I may try the OA though. I was figuring out how to use Comodo though This could become a very time consuming experience chasing the holy grail of firewalls. I can already see OA or any other vendor making what ever mistake Comodo made and then jumping vendor to vendor.

Care to share what settings you fiddled with? For me this is a learning experience of the various software firewalls out there and how well they do what they claim.

Comodo have too many bad practices for me to ever use them again. It's a shame as some of their products are good.

Online Armor is an excellent alternative.
