Which antivirus passes EICAR tasks?
In this thread in Wilder's Security Forums, someone download all the EICAR files and blocks them 2 out of 4 times with AVG. That user stated that now they have Avira didn't have the problem with EiCAR. I read that telling Avira to remove the file only shows the "System is being scanned" dialog box which takes about 2 minutes to scan. In the meantime, the EICAR file is in the Downloads folder.
I was hoping that Avira instantly prevents the download of files, like AVG does. I have read that Avast had blocked all the files from EICAR except for the the SSL enabled protocol https: Avast Free + EICAR testfile
if you have experience with Avira or Avast and SSL enabled protocols, then add it to this thread.
