A weakness has been reported in Comodo Internet Security, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security features.

The weakness is caused due to the application not properly implementing security checks in certain kernel hooks, which can be exploited to bypass those checks by changing the arguments after the check but prior to their use by the system call.

cpf.exe is falsely reported as being insecure and needing to be updated but the product version is 4.1.149672.916 and one of its two file version attributes is also 4.1.149672.916.

@jj_four ,

As you are a new member of the Community Forum , allow me to advise you that your problem/comments are not actually relevant to the Secunia Advisory itself ; where you posted is reserved for technical input concerning the vulnerability itself .

Another thread in the "programs" sub-forum is already dealing with your query , so you are best advised to continue in that thread :-

Take care
Anthony
