Eicar test

tero81 Posts: 4 Observer

Has anyone noticed that sense is not blocking plain HTTP Eicar test file download if it is named eicar.com.txt (blocks fine eicar.com from their website)? Don't get the logic here... Bit worried as most common test ever fails.


Here screenshots, all tests were done through plain unencrypted HTTP

    Hello @tero81 


    Thank you for reporting us the issue, I have tested the eicar.com.txt file ( downloaded using http)  in our windows test environment. The eicar file has detected and deleted automatically by our F-secure real-time scanning engine.


    Please provide us some information regarding the issue.


    May I know in which operating system you are trying to download eicar file? i.e iOS


    Could you please check that you enabled all the protection feature on your Sense app?. i.e  open F-Secure Sense, more option( bottom right corner )


    And please check firmware version for F-secure Sense, we assume you have installed the SENSE app on your Android or iOS device.


    1. Open F-secure Sense app.
    2. More (Bottom right corner)> Settings > Hardware
    3. Under Hardware> Security firmware, you can see the version.


    Note: you can able to see the Sense app settings only on admin device.
