A malicious piece of software can easily prevent Comodo from updating by associating a loopback address to Comodo’s update hostname in the Windows HOSTS file, or there is a possibility that the network firewall has blocked Comodo’s update servers, and it is also possible that Comodo’s own update servers is down.
