If you want to test our Web Filter service but worry about being infected, we have a safe website.

 

It is from a highly reputable organisation European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research. We have used this site and can confirm it is safe and works. If you try to download any of the four files available on their linked downloads page at http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html, while running your browser via our web filter, it blocks access every time. It’s also reassuring to know that these files do NOT actually contain viruses but only “look” like they do. So there is no real risk to user’s systems if the web filter does not work. We think this is an ideal tool to use as a test/demo link for the effectiveness of the web filter in blocking malicious sites.
