Is your Antivirus software efficient?

Efficiency of Antivirus software test code: X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

Copy the upper code into Notepad, then save it as a text file. After that, wait for the response from your Antivirus software...


Excellent:- Detect the virus immediately after copying the code
Good - Detect the virus immediately after saving the text file.
Satisfied - Detect the virus after saving the text file for a while.
Low - Detect the virus after scanning the text file.
Bad - Unable to detect the virus even after scanning the text file.
