Validating virus scan task settings

In order to verify that the virus scan task is correctly configured:

  1. Create a folder on the disk. Copy into this folder the test “virus” downloaded from the official EICAR website ( as well as all the test “virus” modifications you created.
  2. Create a new virus scan task and select the folder containing the set of test “viruses” as the object to scan.
  3. Allow all events to be logged so the report file retains data on corrupted objects and objects not scanned because of errors.
  4. Run the virus scan task.

When the scan task is running, the actions specified in the task settings are performed as suspicious or infected objects are detected. By selecting different actions to be performed with the detected object, you can perform a full check of the component’s operation.

You can view all information about the virus scan task actions in the report on the component’s operation.
