EICAR TEST FILE TEST!!
« on: November 20, 2007, 04:29:42 AM »

Test your Anti-Virus web protection by trying to download the following files.

Eicar file= is a standardized test file for signature based virus detection software. This file can be used to verify the correct operation of antivirus software
See below for more details.
http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm

All files are NOT viruses, but they appear to be viruses, therefore your Anti-Virus should stop the downloads.

If you can download any of these files, then your Anti-Virus is NOT effective! Just delete any file downloaded and empty Recycle Bin.

http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar_com.zip

http://www.eicar.org/download/eicarcom2.zip
Note:
All settings especially web realtime protection must be set to max settings & option scan archives enabled!! (:CLP)

Disable any download manager like Internet download manager & Orbit & more.
Your Antivirus should pass all these test in order to be totally effective!!! (:KWL)

All the files have the same content:

X5O!P%[at]AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

What's an AV supposed to do with that?

Btw, I don't get any pop-ups with Antivir or Avast...

THEN I AM SORRY TO INFORM YOU THAT ITS WEB REALTIME PROTECTION IS INEFFECTIVE!!!! (:SAD)

All files are NOT viruses, but they appear to be viruses, therefore your Anti-Virus should stop the downloads


THIS IS AN ACCURATE TESTING USED BY AV-COMPARATIVES, VIRUS INFO, VIRUS BULITEEN & AV-TEST
See below for more details.
http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm

NOTE: KASPERSKY VERSION 7.0.125. PASSED ALL TEST (:CLP) :BNC
 NOD32 VERSION 3.0.566.0 PASSED 2 OF  THE TEST. it failed the last two test! (:SAD)

REALTIME PROTECTION & ON DEMAND SCANNING ARE TOO DIFFERENT THINGS, THE ANTIVIRUS YOU HAVE MAY HAVE GREAT DETECTION RATES BUT ITS REALTIME PROTECTION IS LACKING

Sorry UG, but either an AV does it's job or it doesn't, you can't start stipulating conditions half way through. I've tried all, the AV's I have and none picked up this so called test virus. Maybe it's my test environment...

Please stop shouting. its rude.

Please stop shouting. its rude.
urhh, i dun hear anything..

dis test suppose to test the download action only rite? then is it neccessary?
i mean u alr dl the nasty and ur real-time AV cant stop it but wen da nasty wanna execute, the AV can pick it. Then ur AV does its job which is no injection happenned.

NOTE:
ALL ANTIVIRUS SHOULD BE SET AT MAX SETTINGS FOR THIS TEST TO COMPLETE.
Kaspersky settings should be set to scan all archives at maximum settings.
MAX SETTINGS
even KAV is quite lite, set it at highest settings is stil wat u dun wanna do for a limited resource PC.
