COMODO Memory Firewall 2.0.4.20

Comodo Memory Firewall is a buffer overflow detection and prevention tool which provides the ultimate defence against one of the most serious and common attack types on the Internet - the buffer overflow attack. Comodo Memory Firewall protects against data theft, computer crashes and system damage by preventing most types of buffer overflow attacks. This type of attack occurs when a malicious program or script deliberately sends more data to its memory buffer than the buffer can handle. It is at this point that a successful attack can create a back door to the system though which a hacker can gain access. The goal of most attacks is to install malware onto the compromised PC whereby the hacker can reformat the hard drive, steal sensitive user information, or even install programs that transform the machine into a Zombie PC.

The product is aimed for system administrators as well as desktop users to protect their systems and detects suspicious code executions in the stack or the heap portions of the memory.

Comodo Memory Firewall detects the following types of attack:

  • Detection of Buffer Overflows which occur in the STACK memory
  • Detection of Buffer Overflows which occur in the HEAP memory
  • Detection of ret2libc attacks
  • Detection of corrupted/bad SEH Chains
What's New:
  • Conflict with Windows Vista licensing resolved

I used Comodo's Antivirus and it jacked my system up so bad that I had to reinstall windows. I haven't had the courage to reinstall their firewall. I've been too scared. For now I'm back to using ZoneAlarm Pro (hey, it's paid for) I have nothing bad to say about their firewall except that its learning mode isn't very good.

Their Antivirus isn't good yet but firewall is pretty good for a free firewall.. I have it in one of my box with Avira Antivir and haven't had any problems..

In my main box I use NOD32..

this is useful if you have apps that can cause those things,it found 2 apps that i got that do those bad things so time to fix them.

They say I need:
- Anti-virus
- Spam Blocker
- Firewall
- Memory Firewall
- McAfee's SiteAdviser
- LiveUpdate for my security apps
- Sandboxie

I now have just enough resources left to run Notepad and Solitaire (but not at the same time! )

The question is, do people really need this?

When behind a modem/router with firewall ON and Vista Firewall: No.

Is this needed if DEP is on? I guess my understand was that DEP would basically eliminate buffer overflows, etc...
