Hi Team,

I have installed Microsoft defender in Ubuntu OS, I download many eicar file.test into Ubuntu OS and scanning the full system by using command mdatp scan full, the system scanning the directory but not detecting the eicar virus file.

However ClamAV on Ubuntu detects eicar file.

Note : mdatp successfully installed on ubuntu os, but still why I'm not able to detect the eicar test file virus.

Your help really appreciated.

Please respond me ASAP.

Best Regards
Amit Badgujar

    Try attach these files and report them to Microsoft Anti-Malware teams and make sure specify you are testing them on Ubuntu and also the version of Ubuntu and MD ATP and other valuable information.
