Test Description

The Spycar suite is a set of 16 individual tests designed to (harmlessly) simulate the behavior of spyware programs to see if your security software detects and blocks it. The tests are broken down into the following broad categories:

Autostart Tests - 6 different tests

IE Config Changes - 10 different tests

Network Config Changes - 1 test

For Spycar to accurately test each module, you should run each test separately. Users interested in finding out more should visit the developers website at: http://spycar.org

The graphic above shows one of the IE Config Change Tests. The Spycar suite also contains its own results and clean up utility called 'TowTruck.exe' which should be run after completing a full cycle of tests
