At least on our system, it does hit Eicar via MailScanner lint, for what that's worth.
Ours is a small system, though, and rarely do we see email-born viruses hit, regardless
of the anti-virus system we have in place. So, I can't really say whether Bitdefender
is working or not. Maybe it's providing a false sense of security.
This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
