after upgrading to firmware V1.2.19 I ran the usual test to verify that antivirus is actually working: try to download the eicar test file (from I found the following:

  • The test file is detected by ISA550 IPS (if activated).
  • The test file is NOT detected by the ISA550 AV Service (i.e. if IPS is switched off)!
  • The file is detected by the Microsoft SmartScreen filter (in IE).


Can anybody reproduce that and/or explain if the AntiVirus service is working at all with the new firmware version?
