Hey so I was searching the internet for some ways to test my PC's Security programs, and I found something called the EICAR Test.

To test it, copy and paste the code below into a text document, such as Notepad and save it as anything.


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


After saving it, Scan it, and see what happens.

I know pretty much any Anti Virus/Spyware software will pick it up, but it's also good for seeing if your software is legit and not a rogue.

AVG picked it up as a very dangerous treat.

Yeah it's probably recognized by all Anti-Viruses on Virus Total as a threat. (That would be the first time I've seen all 47 of them catch it, lol)

I'm in shock that Malwarebytes didn't pick it up. That's like the first virus definition that should be added to ANY anti-virus. Oh and ByteHero didn't catch it either (Although, I don't know ANYONE who uses ByteHero as a standalone Security application)

This reminds me of a batch file I made from watching a tutorial on Youtube: It was designed to delete the entire C drive. It was automatically detected and removed by AVG.

I could have sworn my Computer teacher told me that wasn't possible. -_-

You don't have an anti-virus? We all get caught off guard at some point while browsing the net, and with all the porn watching you do, it must be problematic. :P

MalwareBytes detects MALWARE, not fullon viruses.

What they detected just now was "EICAR Test-NOT virus!!!" as AVG puts it.


EDIT: Fucking hate this new textbox shit

Malware is is a general term defined as any piece of software that has malicious intent. This includes viruses. Malwarebytes just sucks.

I had a feeling that was the case. And I use SuperAntiSpyware, yet it picked the file, lol
