FAQ

Is this actual malware?

No, this EdtdTestFile.exe is just a dropper of Eicar (a standard malware test file). This event is being detected during analysis in a sandbox in ESET LiveGuard Advanced.

How can I be sure?

Here are the source codes of the test files:

Windows executable

#include <fstream>

#include "tchar.h"

#include "windows.h"

 

int main()

{

    std::ofstream dropped;

    dropped.open(_T("eicar.com"));

    dropped << "X5O!P%@AP[4\\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*";

    dropped.close();

    ::MessageBox(nullptr, _T("EDTD test file has been executed.\n2020.4.15 10:34"), _T("EDTD test file"), MB_OK);

    return 0;

}

Linux binary

#include <fstream>

#include <iostream>

#include <stdio.h>

 

int main()

{

std::ofstream dropped;

dropped.open("eicar.com");

dropped << "X5O!P%@AP[4\\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*";

dropped.close();

std::cout << "EDTD test file has been executed." << std::endl;

getchar();

return 0;
