Normally eicar is used for testing.

I've found it best to test by having it enclosed in a few ZIP files, to
make sure the scanner's recursing them properly.

Isn't there a site where I can download contained versions of the
various
virus strands. The company I work for is putting a front end on a
scanner
and we need something to scan and clean :o). I guess I could gather
some
of the backed up or quarantined viri from our current protective
devices,
but thought there might be an easier way.

Thanks,

Tim Lamberth
