NotAThreat.EICAR[Test File]
« on: September 10, 2010, 01:47:53 PM »
Hi,just now I have just tested Avast! to scan this virus:NotAThreat.EICAR[Test File].Unfortunately, Avast!did not detect it but I use SAS to scan this virus and SAS detected as a Trojan:http://www.fileresearchcenter.com/E/EICAR.COM-21792.html

You can test with this method:
1)Open your notepad and copy paste the below line with out quoets

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

2)Now save it as “myfile.com”

3)scan it with your anti-virus and you av should detect it and remove it.You can also place the myfile.com file in a ZIP or RAR file and run a scan on it so as to ensure whether your anti-virus can detect the test string in the compressed archive


Finally,I right-clicked chose Avast! to quick scan and Avast! said no threat found but when I chose SAS and SAS detected..html

@13thSlayer,

I get the method from here:http://knowhacking.wordpress.com/category/test-your-anti-virus/.I was just felt a little sorry to Avast! for doing that.

@Altarir,
You meant that Avast! detected this virus?Hpw you scanned?

You probably pasted the wrong string altogether. Click here and see if Avast reacts.
