I don't think I would install it, it is not in the Debian packages, or repos,.....
The library you are talking about, seems to be rather "out dated",
I you feel you must have this program, probably the best thing would be
to contact the "support" at the site where you are trying to get this program.
I did some searches for you,
how to install install Comodo AV on a Debian system

libssl0.9.8 for Debian , in debian repos

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17329036/installing-libssl0-9-8-on-debian-7
They say you can get the library here:
http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20110406T213352Z/pool/main/o/openssl098/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-7_amd64.deb
This (the above ) is a download,....

But honestly, after every thing I read in the search results,....
I really do not feel at all comfortable trying to explain how to install it,
I do not think it is a good idea, it might be ok for Windows, but
I would not put it on a Debian system.
You should try contacting them, and if they offer good support,
maybe it can be installed and is safe enough,...I really don't know
though,... I certainly would not even down load it, much less install it,
even on my Debian 6 system,.... but it is your system,... do what you want.

It might help you understand better, if you read this ,:

https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

=========== additional note======
There might be somebody here that is familiar with this software, and
they can give more information,..... I am just saying, if it was me I wouldn't
even mess with it. However, I am not saying this "blindly" or off the wall,
it is my conclusion after reading some of the material in the search results,
using the key words I showed you.
It also would help if you show us exactly what the:
then it show me an error about "libssl0.9.8".

Show us exactly what the error says. They would need that information
at their "support" as well,....

This is the dark fear of people who are used to a broken operating system.
Major anti-virus software providers agree about one third of badwares goes undetected by AV software, generally the worst ones slip thru.
So what's the point having anti-virus if it is so ineffective?
The first line of defense is the strength of operating system.
Anti-virus is second line of defense for those who do not have the first line.

I'm wondering what led you to chose Comodo AV. I thought they had a really sketchy reputation in the security community, exemplified by their rebuilds of popular open source browsers that actually purposely introduced possible security holes.

Oh come on, that is not fair. If "operating system" refers to Windows 95, 98, ME, your assessment would be fair. Modern Windows operating systems are far more robust and secure.

You may think I am a Windows user, but the truth is I have been a Linux user since 2007 as my main operating system. I never reverted back as there are other advantages in using Linux like open sourced executables and easier methods of installing software.
Debian == { > 30, 000 packages }; Debian != systemd
The worst infection of all, is a false sense of security!
It is hard to get away from CLI tools.

Your time would be better spent learning about software like AppArmor, Firejail, AIDE, Grsecurity, etc.
