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

Does anyone thinking that these Comodo Leak Tests coming from a firewall company is a little self-serving.

I wonder if Comodo Firewall fails any of the tests

The Leak Tests are used to fine tune the Firewall settings to insure the greatest level of protection. Every instance of the Comodo Firewall passing the Leak Tests with a 100% perfect score is not a given. Some Comodo Firewall users initially have trouble passing all of the Leak Tests, but by sharing which specific exploits in the Leak Tests their set up is vulnerable to advise can be given as to what settings will improve their protection to 100%.

The Comodo Leak Tests are not a contest, but rather a set of tools that can be used to diagnose the vulnerability level of different software Firewalls including the Windows 7 Firewall...

I scored 140/340 that means there are 200 vulnerabilities.

Francis93- Actually its not quite that bad. A 140/340 score on the Leak Tests would mean that your Firewall passed 14 of 34 tests giving it a 41% pass rate with 20 vulnerabities. Which Firewall are you using?

Some people seem to think that Comodo developed these Leak Tests to show that the Comodo Firewall always passes them when in fact they are diagnostic tools to help show where any Firewall is lacking in protection so that it can be brought up to full protection.

Do you have the latest Comodo release of v5.0.32580.1142 in the x32 or x64 version that your computer requires? If so uninstall the currently installed version and do a clean install of the latest version, choose Proactive Defense+ with maximum protection during the install and then follow these Comodo Firewall, Defense+ HIPS and Sandbox settings guidelines in order to maximize your State of the Art Comodo 2011 protection. Here is a link to some Detailed Installation Instructions









Please let us know how things go. These settings should yield a perfect 340/340 Leak Test evaluation on your Win 7 computer as they do on mine and many other Comodo users win 7 computers, but if now we can keep trying until full protection against all 34 exploits is achieved.

Win 7 firewall fails leak test
