Now test your Anti-Spyware too...

In the previous post, I was talking about, how to test your Anti-virus softwares effectiveness against detecting VIRUSES and removing them.

In this post, we are going to check how good your Anti-virus software is against SPYWARE and if it can detect and remove them.
This is also applicable to special Anti-Spyware software as well..

This is done by "SPYCAR".
These are based on ideas similar to "eicar" and are safe to try out..

So what is SPYCAR?
SPYCAR is a suite of tools designed to mimic spyware-like behavior, but in a benign form. Intelguardians created Spycar so anyone could test the behavior-based defenses of an anti-spyware tool. Spycar runs only on Windows, the same platform most targeted by spyware developers.

You can carry out the tests by visiting this link.

Once again, I am happy to inform that, my new Anti-virus software managed to pick up these files as malicious and was able to protect my system.
