The European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research (EICAR) has developed a test virus to test your antivirus appliance. This script is an inert text file. The binary pattern is included in the virus pattern file from most antivirus vendors. The test virus is not a virus and does not contain any program code.
Never use real viruses to test your Internet security.
Download the EICAR test virus from one of the following URLs:
Alternatively, you can create your own EICAR test virus by typing or copying the following into a text file, and then naming the file eicar.com:
Flush the local browser cache before testing. If the local browser cache contains a copy of the test virus, it is possible an attempt to download the file would get the file from the cache, rather than getting it from the Internet, and Deep Edge would not detect the file.
Log on to the Deep Edge web console.
