Publisher's Description

Comodo Memory Firewall is a buffer overflow detection and prevention tool which provides the ultimate defense against one of the most serious and common attack types on the Internet - the buffer overflow attack. It 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.

I have used this on many computers and it works great.... no more drive-by downloads (stealth download of malware)

Three stars because I have not tried it yet but need to give it some rating so this will post.

I found the following on the COMODO Forums but it was from an informed user and not from COMODO staff so ... but for what it is worth. Three stars because I have not tried it yet but need to give it some rating so this will post.
--------------------
Comodo Firewall Pro and Comodo Memory Firewall do two different things. Comodo Firewall Pro offers outbound protection (version 3 also offers system protection), while Comodo Memory Firewall protects you from buffer overflows. Buffer overflows are commonly used for drive-by downloads (stealth download of malware).
So Comodo Memory Firewall will not replace Comodo Firewall Pro, and reverse.

Color me confused:
What's the difference between this, and Comodo Firewall Pro? Is this meant as an additional layer of protection, or what?
