I hit an article where the staff mentioned Ecar.com Google shows only two post to this site, so a third. I run Nod32 now ESETnod32 almost all the time, now with XPro64bit, but the OS doesn't matter nor the anti-virus program. I have XADDED5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H* that should make this page unvisitable without ADDED if I assume correctly. I used to add it to usenet posts to set off alerts. If I take that line and create fake.com I get "that file isn't made for this OS" at the moment, other times (OS's) I get nothing. I go to ~No links to malware allowed here.~ (site is clean but contains virus's) to test my anti-virus programs . . Nod32 catches about 80% which is very good. But my question is why doesn't the Ecar string work? My string was picked up 1 May 2003, as The Anti-Virus test file, But shouldn't matter. Just curious, thanks.
