Windows 7: Comodo Leak Test: What's your score?

Ok, so now I'm nervous all of a sudden. Is this telling me I'm infected and don't know it, or just the vulnerability of such?

And what format are you saving the file as?

No, you're not infected ... It's just showing you the possible vulnerabilities that you're subject to..

Hello
(newbie here)

I have ran the Comodo leak test three times and the score I get is a paltry 30 / 340.

I have my Comodo firewall set up exactly as in Post 29 of this thread, so I don't know where I am going wrong.

Can someone help / offer any advice please?

Thanks in advance!

Tara100- Are you making sure to Deny each and every Firewall and Defense+ pop-up during the test? If so you might try disabling the Comodo Sandbox during the Leak Tests and see if that improves your score.

Hi

I do have 'sandbox' disabled, and I followed this helpful info I found to a tee, and now my score is just 20!

1. Make sure you have the following CIS settings:
Configuration = proactive. [Proactive security is the strongest security configuration, and will provide the best protection against leaks. I suggest that you always use the proactive security configuration. To select this setting, click on the "more" tab, then click on "manage my configurations". Select "proactive Security", click "activate", and then click "close".]
Firewall = safe mode, custom policy mode, or block all mode.
Defense + = safe mode or paranoid mode
Image execution control level = enabled [To set this, click on the defense+ tab, then click on "Defense + settings", then click the "execution control settings" tab.]
Detect shellcode injections = selected [To set this, click on the defense+ tab, then click on "Defense + settings", then click the "execution control settings" tab. At the bottom of the window, select the check-box titled "Detect shellcode injections (i.e. Buffer overflow protection)"].
Monitor settings = make sure all of the boxes are selected [To set this, click on the defense+ tab, then click on "Defense + settings", then click the "Monitor settings" tab.]
Sandbox = disabled [CLT was not designed to be used in a sandbox. If CLT is sandboxed, it will generate erroneous results!]


2. Make sure there are no CIS rules that have been generated by having run CLT previously (i.e. remove rules for CLT):

Defense+ Security Policy

Click the "defense+" tab at the top of the CIS window
Click "Computer Security Policy"
Click on "Defense+ Rules" tab. Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
Click on "Always Sandbox" tab. Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
Click on "Blocked Files" tab. Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
click "Ok"

Unrecognized files

Click the "defense+" tab at the top of the CIS window
Click "Unrecognized Files"
Click on "Unrecognized Files" tab. Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
click "Ok"

Trusted files

Click the "defense+" tab at the top of the CIS window
Click "Trusted Files"
Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
click "Close"

Firewall Security policy

Click the "firewall" tab at the top of the CIS window
Click on "Network Security Policy"
Click on the "Application Rules" tab
Scroll down the list of files. Select any entry that has "clt.exe" in the application name and click the remove button.
click "OK".

3. Delete the Internet Explorer (IE) browsing history cache. Run IE, click on the "tools" menu, then select "internet options". Click on the "general tab" and then click on the "delete" button under browsing history. You can also delete the browsing history using cleaning programs such as CCleaner or Cleanup! The reason why you need to clean the IE history: If CLT was previously run and previously failed "Impersonation: Coat", IE will open the target webpage from the IE cache, and not through the leak, leading to a false failure of "Impersonation: Coat". Erasing the browsing history ensures that IE cannot load the webpage from the cache and forces IE to load the webpage through the leak.

4. Reboot your computer (The current version of CLT does not "clean out" some actions that it creates after it has been run. If CLT is re-run without rebooting, it may give an inaccurate score because of these left over actions. The only way to clean out these actions is to re-boot).

5. Run CLT*. If you get an alert from the antivirus, click "ignore" and then "Add to trusted files" (the antivirus is alerting you that a leak test application has been launched [it's flagged as "Application.Win32.LeakTest..."]; it is not saying that the file is malicious). The first alert that appears should be a defense+ alert that says "explorer.exe is a safe application. However, the executable clt.exe could not be recognized..." For this alert, make sure that "remember my answer" is unchecked, and then click allow. The CLT program window should appear. Click the "Test" button in CLT and, from this point onward, click "block" when a CIS alert appears. Now check your score. It should be 340/340.

* Remember to run CLT with the sandbox disabled. If CLT is sandboxed, it will generate erroneous results! CLT was not designed to test HIPS security from within a sandbox.

6. CLT was designed to test the HIPS component of CIS. Based on current feedback from the developers, CLT can give erroneous and unreliable results when testing CIS in any configuration that is different from the one described above (it is a limitation within CLT). The reasons why CLT may give unreliable results when using other CIS configurations will be the topic of another FAQ post (as soon as we get more feedback from the developers).

7. If you still cannot get good score on CLT, try the following:

Run diagnostics [click on the "more tab", then click "diagnostics"]. Repair any problem that is found with your CIS installation.
Perhaps your copy of CLT is corrupted. Download a fresh copy of CLT from here. Unzip the folder. Perform steps 1-3 above, then reboot. Then, run the newly downloaded CLT

Tara100- Are you making sure that you are Denying each and every Firewall and Defense+ pop-up during the Leak Test? Did you follow through on all the suggestions that you listed from Comodo? If so then I would suggest that you take your problem over to the Comodo Forums so you can get this situation straightened out. This link will take you to to the Comodo Leak Testing forum where you will be able to get some good advise on how to rectify this problem...

Thanks for the reply again

I have posted over there since starting the thread here, and the response (albeit from only one person) is that my CIS is working fine

Im finding that difficult to take on board, and there are folks aver there in almost sheer panic because their leak test scores are 300 / 330. Mine is 20, hence my disbelief that Comodo is working fine.
I also stated that I never receive any pop up alerts anymore, yet when I used the 'old' Comodo, I still got quite a few even though it had 'learned' my PCs ins and outs.

I've also run the Comodo diagnostics tool, and it didn't pick up any issues.

Thanks anyway for the replies

Tara100- I see that you are running Windows XP 32 bit. What version of Comodo do you currently have installed? Have you ever run any other versions of Comodo like the classic v3.14? Like John said over on the Comodo Forums you may get a better score with an older version of Comodo. I would suggest trying CIS v3.14 x32 if you want a better Leak Test score because obviously v5.3 isn't testing well with your Win XP x32 OS. You can download it from FileHippo here...

Hi again Maxx

My Comodo is version 5.3.1, and yes, I have run other versions as I've been with Comodo for a few years now.
I might just do a clean uninstall and re-install and see if there's an improvement.

Thanks again for your posts

Win 7 firewall fails leak test
