I was within minutes of purchasing a Comodo SSL certificate, when I just happened to come across this story which has broken over the past few days: SSL-busting adware: US cyber-plod open fire on Comodo's PrivDog • The Register Adware Privdog worse than Superfish - Hanno's blog Lots more on Google News: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en....126.96.36.199.5188.8.131.52...0.0...1ac.1.Ro4epXqyK60 Comodo's "Internet Security" software targeted for consumers prompts them to install PrivDog, which just happens to be created by Comodo CEO Melih Abdulhayaglu. As if these security issues weren't enough, PrivDog is a really offensive, ridiculous piece of software: it blocks ads on publisher's websites and replaces them with its own "trusted ads". In other words, it doesn't just block the ads that pay the bills for most Centminmod users, it hijacks them! I know Comodo certificates are very popular, and I just want to make sure that the Centminmod community is aware of this. I want nothing to do with Comodo now, and certainly do not want to support them financially as they work to undermine my livelihood and the security of the Internet at large.
