How to test your antivirus quality with EICAR test

How to test your antivirus quality with EICAR test
Hey friends, today I am going to tell you a method to test your antivirus functionality. We are going to conduct EICAR test to check whether the antivirus is working. So, let's start.

Follow The Instructions:

  • Open notepad.
  • Copy and paste this code:
  • X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
  • Now save it with .exe OR .com extension, like antivirustest.exe
  • As you save this file, your antivirus will detect it as a virus (or while scanning this file, it will be detected as a threat) and will remove it. If your antivirus doesn't detects it, then you must change your antivirus.
