Well said.

This is a well known test "virus" that everybody should catch. The MSE reaction was interesting in that it caught it as it started the download process (for me). Some others have posted that it saw what it was even earlier.

Bottom line: I would be concerned if my antivirus/antimalware DIDN'T catch these test files right off the bat.
