Testing the HTTP traffic protection
In order to verify that viruses are successfully detected in a data stream transferred via the HTTP protocol:
try to download this test “virus” from the EICAR‘s official website at http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm.
When the computer attempts to download the test “virus”, Kaspersky Internet Security detects the object, identifies it as an infected object that cannot be disinfected, and performs the action specified in the HTTP traffic scan settings for objects with this status. By default, when you attempt to download the test “virus”, the connection with the website is terminated and the browser displays a message indicating that the object is infected with the EICAR-Test-File virus.
