Press Release Summary: Comodo A-VSMART Warranty ($79/ year) Provides a \"No Worry\",
Industry Leading Guarantee* - PCs Protected with Comodo A- VSMART Technology Will
Free Users From Worrying About Cleaning Malware from their PCs.

Press Release Body: JERSEY CITY, NJ February 20, 2008 - Comodo, a leading security
company, today announced an unmatched innovation in the PC Security market -
A-VSMART Warranty. This paid warranty program gives end users unprecedented
reassurance that any PC protected with A-VSMART technology (as in the latest version
of Comodo Firewall Pro) will remain malware-free or a Comodo technical expert will
remove it. Only Comodo offers this type of warranty with a \"No Worry\" Guarantee*
because A-VSMART technology delivers \"anti - virus, spyware, malware, adware,
rootkit and trojan\" protection utilizing a proactive and preventative model that
allows only trusted applications access to a computer system.
Comodo Puts Accountability Back Into Desktop Security Based on A-VSMART Technology

Today, consumers spend over $5 Billion on anti-virus and/ or firewall solutions to
keep computers safe from viruses, malware and Trojans. Most other anti-virus
solutions operate on a detection-based model - allowing all applications access to a
computer to then be evaluated based on their \"signature\". This model is especially
flawed in protecting PCs from Zero Day attacks - attacks from new viruses, spyware,
and trojans that do not have an identifying \"signature\". Therefore, while security
companies sell AV or security solutions for $40 or more that fail at least 50% of
the time, (according to Australian Computer Emergency Response Team - AusCERT) and
then charge again about $100 \"per incident\" to have their systems cleaned, the net
result is that end users can spend hundreds per year to maintain a clean PC.

Comodo\'s revolutionary approach using A-VSMART technology includes Comodo\'s free
Firewall Pro with A-VSMART technology platform to protect PCs from malware over 90%
of the time and A-VSMART Warranty freeing users from worrying about the time, cost,
frustration, and risk of ever dealing with a malware-infected PC again. Both offers
are meant to work together to save users money and, more importantly, worries that
their PCs and personal identity security are at risk. This new approach puts
accountability back into the security industry because Comodo Firewall Pro\'s free
prevention-based approach delivers high performance anti-malware protection while
A-VSMART Warranty is a customer selected added layer of reassurance that Comodo
offers users who would want extra support \"just in case\". No other security vendor
offers this type of \"No Worry\" warranty for the PC because competitive anti-virus or
firewall solutions do not provide this same high level of protection against malware
penetrating a system in the first place.
The Comodo \"Worry Free, Malware Free PC\" Offer Description
1. Comodo FREE Comodo Firewall Pro, with A-VSMART Technology - an award-winning
\"Anti-virus, spyware, malware, adware, rootkit and trojan\" security solution.

Comodo Firewall Pro with A-VSMART technology delivers the combined, effective,
preventative protection of both an anti- virus and a firewall - for free. Comodo
Firewall Pro garnered an editor\'s choice from PC Magazine and the highest 5-star
rating from CNET because it does a better job of protecting computers from malware
than conventional, detection-based solutions. The feature list of Comodo Firewall
Pro is designed to integrate advanced technologies with a full set of features
designed to optimize usability, enhance functionality, and enable a high level of
user configurability.

* Advanced protection from Hackers, Spyware, Trojans and Identity theft

2. Comodo A-VSMART Warranty - the best \"No Worry\" Warranty on market today.

Comodo A-VSMART Warranty, at a cost of $79 per year, is a breakthrough in the
industry because Comodo gives users a \"No Worry\" guarantee protecting users from
having to clean malware from their systems while covered under the warranty.
A-VSMART Warranty provides peace of mind for those users who want more support and
expert assistance in managing the complexity of removing Virus, Spyware, Malware,
Rootkit or Trojan (known collectively as malware) from their computer. This cost is
highly competitive with typical \"per incident\" fees which can be $100 or more (not
to mention the $40 cost of the AV software). Comodo also offers a $119 premium
version of the warranty that includes expert PC system cleaning and professional
installation of Comodo Firewall Pro in addition to the malware-related incident

Two warranty plans are available:

o Around-the-clock (24x7) access to computer experts who will remotely

your personal information is not compromised or lost. This level of support is
unavailable from even the largest security companies in the market today and can
easily save end-users hundreds of dollars per year in software and repair costs.

\"We are one of the first desktop security companies that has put itself between its
users and malware\", said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of
Comodo. \"Our A-VSMART technology puts us in a position to drive accountability back
into the security category because our A-VSMART Warranty is only cost effective if
our users\' systems are well protected from malware with our A-VSMART technology in
our firewall solutions. End users deserve accountability and Comodo is the one to
deliver it with A-VSMART Warranty.\"

Today, over 100 million people associate Comodo with security because of the
performance, reputation and reliability of Comodo security products and services.

free PCs.
