Although the security community has relied on the “Eicar Antivirus Test File” for years, the complex advances in malware requires a more modern and thorough threat simulation.  To this end the “DFK Threat Simulator” was created.  Bundling a declawed collection of dropper, rootkit, virus, trojan, spyware, keylogger, leaktest, and alternate data stream technology, the DFK Threat Simulator is a serious representation of the modern dangers facing computer users today.  A full description of this simulator, including screenshots and file download, can be found here.
