Several e-mail virus scanners can be tricked into passing an EICAR
test file if the following conditions are met:

1. the EICAR file is encoded in Base64 including characters not in the
   standard alphabet (e.g. whitespaces) and
2. the part containing the EICAR file is nested within one or several
   levels of multipart/mixed content.

Details and PoC can be found at:

That's _extremely_ irresponsible to disclose bugs without giving the vendors
any chance to fix them and prepare new software releases.
