Happy Birthday EICAR!

EICAR (http://www.eicar.org/) was formally founded on this day in 1990, in Brussels. EICAR was originally conceived as a professional body focused on anti-virus whose membership would extend beyond the technical experts in CARO (http://www.caro.org/tiki-index.php).

For many people, EICAR is best known for the EICAR test file, an industry-standard test file that can be used to confirm thatt anti-virus software is installed and working correctly.

Here’s wishing EICAR success in its next 16 years as a forum for anti-malware professionals.
