EICAR Antivirus Testing Standard
(European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research)
To Test Just Copy & Paste the following line in Notepad n save it as EICAR.COM
When done, the resulting file will have either 68 or 70 bytes.
When u scans this file with any anti virus, it will report finding EICAR Test-¬NOT virus!!.
It is really very important to know that this is not a Virus n will not infect your Computer anyway, actually The Eicar Standard AntiVirus Test File is a combined effort by antivirus vendors throughout the world and EICAR organisation to come up with one standard by which customers can verify their antivirus installations
