Today I Downloaded & tested the Comodo Antivirus On testing with Eicar I was amazed Comodo didn’t stop it from activating. So back with my Avast Goodbye Comodo Antivirus. Just one more thing as anyone else tested with Eicar?
This has been reported many times and although eicar is not a real virus it is handy to check if your scanner is working correctly.
I can assure you that CAVS does work when it comes to detecting real, recent malware. I recently used it to detect and remove several trojan downloaders and a virus from my sons pc (infected via P2P again).
I do wish the on-access scanner would detect the eicar file though.
