Comodo Antivirus on Linux – Installation ( CentOS )


At a certain point in my life, I dealt a bit with helping friends remove viruses from their computers.


Lab Environment

I have a couple of Linux boxes in our lab environment.

Every few weeks I tinker with them a bit.

I am running Clavam as my baseline desktop AV tool.



Let us see how easy it is to install Comodo AV on a CentOS System.

Please run /opt/COMODO/ script manually to configure it.





Installation of Comodo AV on our CentOS Linux box went well.

Unfortunately, configuration not so well.
