TestVirus
By Dirk Stoecker and Zbigniew Trzcionkowski


Like the EICAR test-files for Microsoft operating systems, these files can help to test the Amiga antivirus software. They will not infect your system, but can be very useful to test the software you use for virus-checking. If your software cannot detect the included files as infected, then either contact the author to fix the software or change to another product (Though getting newest version first is sometimes recommended.

Testvirus package gives you opportunity to check your antivirus software. It's a big set of files that should be detected as infected ones and an additional util that makes it possible to check memory removals. Currently the reported virus name is 'Zeeball AV-Testfile'.


NONE OF THE FILES CONTAINS REAL VIRUS

This is cool package made especially for testing of antivirus software. The main idea is to torture antivirus and libraries/programs it uses for virus detection, file decompression and archive extraction... I have to say that dumb people should better keep away of that package. And please not e-mail the programmers about viruses in this package. Oki?

This package has to be signed with Dirk's PGP key! Do not trust the files if the keysign is missing! There may be people outside, which try to do fake real-infected files. My PGP key can be found in the VirusZ archives, on my web-pages and nearly every international keyserver. All files at Virus Help Team's website is 100% secure.

VirusExecutor finds the testvirus


Following is my PGP signature for the corresponding LhA-File. Use 'pgpv TestVirus.readme -o TestVirus.lha' to check it. Key fingerprint: B9 F2 3A 1A 29 02 75 16 6A C6 5B 7D 5E F6 16 CF. All my releases after April 2001 have a PGP signature with this key. Be alarmed if signature is missing or wrong.
