    The EICAR Standard Anti-Virus Test File or EICAR test file is a computer file that was developed by the Please or Register to view links (EICAR) and Please or Register to view links (CARO), to test the response of computer Please or Register to view links (AV) programs. Instead of using real malware, which could do real damage, this test file allows people to test anti-virus software without having to use a real Please or Register to view links.

    Anti-virus programmers set the EICAR string as a verified virus, similar to other identified signatures. A compliant virus scanner, when detecting the file, will respond in exactly the same manner as if it found a harmful virus. Not all virus scanners are compliant, and may not detect the file even when they are correctly configured.

    The use of the EICAR test string can be more versatile than straightforward detection: a file containing the EICAR test string can be Please or Register to view links or Please or Register to view links, and then the antivirus software can be run to see whether it can detect the test string in the compressed file.

    FOR PC:
    Here's a simple way to test your Antivirus if it is working properly.

    Copy the code/text below, then paste it to notepad and then save it to (any name you want).txt - eg: avtester.txt

    here's the code:
    X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

    now try to scan it with the antivirus installed on your pc/laptop.
    you're antivirus will detect it as a virus/threat, if not then maybe your antivirus is not doing it's job.

    NOTE: THIS IS NOT A VIRUS BUT AN ANTIVIRUS TEST FILE.

    FOR ANDROID:
    Download this app (see playstore link):

    Overview of the App
    "Test your antivirus" verifies if your antivirus is working correctly. It uses the EICAR Antivirus Test File that is harmless.
    How to use this app:
    When installing, your antivirus software should detect it as a threat.
    After install it, you can run a deeper test. On these, your antivirus should detect in real-time:
    a) Several copies of EICAR Antivirus Test file with random names and one of these extensions: APK, JS, DOCX, TXT
    b) A maximum of 5 copies of EICAR test file inside a ZIP file (eicar.zip)
    If not detects all, try to run a complete analysis of your device.
    Let's come to look at the package of this app. This top Tools app is just 2.0M. When running in the background, basically it does not take up much RAM. 9Apps also provides other hot Tools apps(games) for android mobile phone.

    *no need for screenshots, the instructions are inside the app. test it with whatever antivirus you have installed on your android phone.
