Is there a benign virus I can use to test the AV scanner?

Q: Is there a benign virus I can use to test the AV scanner?

A: Eicar.org offers a benignvirus used for testing purposes. Although they don't offer support for any specific Anti-virus scanning tool, they can provide a simple virus that would help test your AV application. For more information and to download the virus, visit http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm.

Thanks to Andrew H. for providing an answer to this question.
