I installed Comodo firewall and noticed a connection request from a PC at an IP address with a known hacking history for scanning. Question is, how is something like this managed by Trend Micro Maximum Security? How can a user manage such attempts to connect through the firewall?
Welcome to the community! Trend Micro Maximum Security has a feature called Firewall Booster, which can work with third-party firewalls to provide network vulnerability detection and anti- botnet protection.
However, Firewall Booster feature can only enhance the protection of firewall and can not replace the firewall. As a suggestion, you should report your problem to Comodo and ask for their help here: Comodo Security Product Support
