There are two common perspectives to testing Portable Executable (PE) files:

  • One at a time

    • Test each malware sample individually, reviewing the testing machine's state after it has been executed, and then validating whether it was blocked or let through.

    • This approach is precise, but is time consuming.

  • Many at a time

    • A bulk of malicious files are dropped onto the testing machine at the same time to test the real-time anti-malware scanner's ability to detect and cleanup the samples.

    • This is less precise, but it takes much less time to perform.
