There's so much wrong with your post, Luiji, I don't even know where to start. So I won't.
Yes, that would be because its its purpose in life. Every antivirus program * is designed to pick up upon the EICAR test file. The idea is you can't be sure that you have installed and run an antivirus until it picks up a virus. But if you don't happen to have a handy virus infecting your system...how do you know it works? Enter EICAR, a small text string that compliant virus scanners recognise as a virus. Thus you can place the EICAR test file on your system, and see if your scanner picks up on it, without having to risk putting an *actual* virus on your system.Luiji wrote:I guess it won't do anything on Linux either, yet ClamAV still screamed.
* In theory, at least. its pretty standard, but there's probably a few that don't

Copyleft simply means any derivative must use the same license (like the GPL). The zlib license doesn't require that.
