Hello,

What ways do you know to pen-test email antivirus
software?

A cool one that has been published before is to zip a
very large file that contains the same character. The
result, a very small file attached to an email could
deplete resources on the antivirus server. Do you know
any AV exploitable with this?

All the best,
Ilici
