EICAR Test File


Recommended Posts

Hi, Patojonas:


Until staff comes along, IIRC I don't think MBAM works with the Eicar test file?


Perhaps this will work: How can I verify that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is working?


Also, there's a special area of the forum for v.2.00 BETA feedback >>HERE<<. :)

I'm not certain, but I would guess that the dev team might prefer that topics about the beta version be posted there, so that they will be easier to find?

MBAM specifically targets binaries that start with the first two characters being; MZ
They can be; EXE, CPL, SYS, DLL, SCR and OCX. Any of these files types can be renamed to be anything such as;  TXT, JPG, CMD and BAT and they will still be targeted just as long as the binary starts with 'MZ'.
As you can see by the string, it is not a PE and thus it is not targeted.  Therefore it is not going to be detected.
