    Hi,

    Could some one provide some links of eicar test for webscripts (not the com or zip or exe or txt). When you know of other please PM me.

    YEP, I did the same as Steve Ragan in his ForceField 'test'. Now having rising, Avast used to pop-up on some pages. Rising's web script module keeps quiet, that is why I started to think that Rising provided this only with IE (I am using Opera skinned as IE).

    Regards

    Zopzop,

    Thanks, ran the tests (was OK). Still no pop up from Rising's web scripting shield (set the to ask me). I can recall a Eicar test on which the Avast web scanner popped up (was embeded in HTML script, in stead as a download to run)

    You can see no pop-ups because the AV cannot see anything malicious - these are just tests . Moreover , nothing happened because the browser blocked them before anything happened . At least here , I use IE7 with default settings , the browser and MS Office asked me for the ActiveXs and the macros .

    Same here with firefox!

    I think the best test would be to visit all dark places you can think of with a sandboxed browser.
    It's a real pleasure too :thumb:

    You don't really have to go to 'dark' places. Just visit some wallpaper sites, a couple of weeks ago the UAC window popped up when I visited one. I think they are worse than crack and warez sites, lol.
