To verify if your Android security software detects drive-by downloads of malware, a simulated “drive-by download” will be initiated: a new web page will open and your browser will automatically attempt to download the AMTSO test APK file for Android.
Drive-by download means two things, each concerning the unintended download of computer software from the Internet:
- Downloads which a person has authorized but without understanding the consequences (e.g. downloads which install an unknown or counterfeit executable program, ActiveX component, or Java applet) automatically.
- Any download that happens without a person’s knowledge, often a computer virus, spyware, malware, or crimeware.
When you click on this button, a simulated “drive-by download” is initiated: a new web page will open and your browser will automatically attempt to download the AMTSO test APK file for Android.
If you are able to download or install this file successfully, your anti-malware solution is NOT configured correctly or DOES NOT conform with industry best practice.
Please contact your vendor’s support department for instructions explaining how to enable the feature in your product.
