Out of curiosity I downloaded various Eicar files from here:
I was able to save most of them in a folder, without any reaction from Webroot.
If I scan the folder , the are detected as “malicious” , but no reaction when I downloaded them.
I have “Scan archived files” and “ Check files for threats when written or modified” selected.
Theoretically , these Eicar versions should have been scanned upon download.
