Performing a Test Scan

  1. Enable Real-time Scan on the agent.
  2. Copy the following string and paste it into Notepad or any plain text editor: X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
  3. Save the file as to a temp directory. Apex One immediately detects the file.
  4. To test other computers on the network, attach the file to an email message and send it to one of the computers.

    Trend Micro recommends packaging the EICAR file using compression software (such as WinZip) and then performing another test scan.
