PostHeaderIcon Testing your Anti-Virus Program

Do you ever wonder if your Antivirus program is really running?

Have you wondered what your antivirus program does when it encounters a virus?

This test virus was developed by the European Institute for Computer Anti-Virus Research (EICAR) to provide a safe and easy way to test your anti-virus program. It is supported by most leading vendors, such as IBM, McAfee, Sophos, and Symantec/Norton.

Download eicar.com to test your anti-virus software
Also Download eicar.zip to see if your anti-virus software detects viruses that are compressed (like in those fake e-mails).
Download eicar2.zip to test your anti-virus program's ability to detect double-zipped viruses.

Remember, the EICAR test virus is not real a virus. It cannot do any harm to your system. ALSO, just because your virus program detects this file, does not mean your Anti-virus program is up to date.
