Eicar

[ Edited ]

Bonjour,

Pourquoi Internet Security 2014 me laisse-t-il télécharger et enregistrer sans réagir eicar.zip trouvé ici: http://securite-informatique.info/virus/eicar/ ?

 

In English

 

Why Internet Security 2014 doesn't react when I download and save eicar.zip found here: http://securite-informatique.info/virus/eicar/

Is this seen with ALL the zip files at this site?

 

Have you tried the the two zipped files at the EICAR official site?; http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html

Re: Eicar

Yes,

 

On this site http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html F-Secure blocks the eicar files in the Download area using the standard protocol http.

 

Why F-Secure does not react on the other site?

Re: Eicar

On the French eicar site are ANY zipped files picked up?

 

Personally I would only be concerned with the results at the OFFICIAL EICAR site.

 

Further some other AVs only pick up the 1 EICAR file at the official site; the eicar.com file.

 

Overall as long as your AV of choice picks up at least this file then the AV is working as it should.

Hi

 

Eicar test files are here:-

Make sure, do a full scan and delete the quarantine files that detected it.

Re: Eicar

F-Secure 2014 picks up all 4 Eicar files before they are downloaded using Chrome, IE, FireFox and Opera.

It does not pick up the Eicar Files using the encrypted SSL-https protocol - but no surprises there as most AVs do not pick these up. 

 

It also picks up on trojan simulator; http://trojan-simulator.softpedia.com/
