Eicar no longer in AV signatures?

L5 Sessionator

Is Eicar testfile no longer blocked by PA? I've tried through 2 PA devices and on both occasions it arrived to endpoint station (where was blocked by endpoint AV).

On 8th September 2015 same configuration was still blocking it.

 

Yes, I am trying http version, I have AV on block etc.

Had the same issue here. Problem is the current content version 533. If you roll back to 532 eicar gets blocked again. Problem was confirmed by TAC yesterday.

From all the possible days I choose to play with this today....

Thank you for the info!

I wonder if this has got to do with the fact that PA drops "old" vulnerability signatures from their database...

Yeah, was thinking the same. Guess we must visit Eicar more to refresh its status in database 🙂
