My diary entry yesterday inspired me to create another test file base on the EICAR test file.

I created a PDF file that contains a DOC file that drops the EICAR test file.

The PDF file contains JavaScript that extracts and opens the DOC file (with user approval). The DOC file contains a VBA script that executes upon opening of the file, and writes the EICAR test file to a temporary file in the %TEMP% folder.

You can find the PDF file on my blog here. This file will generate an anti-virus alert. Use at your own risk, with approval.
