    Honestly you would think after years of the same/similar threads that people would eventually understand that "Tests" don't equate to real world.

    It's a very rare occurrence when ESET products actually fails to protect people in "Everyday" use, hence why the forums are nearly devoid of any complaints regarding infection.

    The OP and others keep relating to tests but have never fell short of protection themself when using the products.

    Unless you get infected with something or fall victim to some kind of ransomware when posting "What If's" is fruitless and misleading to other users.

    Obviously we have different opinions on what this "Simulator" actually does or achieves.

    Like i said above, the application needs looked at properly to see if it does "what is advertised" on the label. From what i can see on the screenshots, every test just "encrypts files and deletes the originals". I could do exactly the same thing creating a password protected file using Winrar, which is legitimate.

    It's not a convenient answer , its a fact

    Eicar is a "test" file that pre-dates any HIPS type system. It's not a simulator.

    Never heard of "knowbe4" , the app needs torn apart to see how it works. But i suspect its nonsense that would return the same result when run under any security product......... the old term "Scareware" comes to mind 😎
