How to test if the AM Scanner is detecting threats

Question

How do we confirm if a file is being detected as a threat when running a scan on Malwarebytes' ?

 

Answer

To test if real-time scanning (or any other scan type) is working, you can use the eicar files that are available for download on the following link:

http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html

 

Some of the files that you download from the link might get detected immediately, specially if you have real-time scanning enabled.
