Eicar and Gtube are your friends

More than once was I trying to debug a mailserver (or spamassassin setup) and couldn’t find the damn EICAR or GTUBE strings.

Here they are.

EICAR (antivirus test):

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

GTUBE (antispam test):

XJS*C4JDBQADN1.NSBN3*2IDNEN*GTUBE-STANDARD-ANTI-UBE-TEST-EMAIL*C.34X
