I have since been very involved in beta testing Comodo programs and in particular their Internet Security.
I am now very saddened to find that there are several members of the security community who seem to be determined to attack Comodo. There seems to be a paranoia about companies offering toolbars (which can easily be deselected) in their installers.
I even see forum posts saying that the security community will not ever again recommend installation of Comodo products.
I believe this to be complete nonsense, but would be interested to see comments from members here.
The main attacks have come from the websites of Donna and MVPS Mike, some of whose comments have seemed to be based on ignorance.
