We have a client who's terminal server is constantly infected from users logging in remotely.  They are mapping all of their local drives and spreading the infections.  I have set up a test network domain and terminal server.  What is the best was to simulate an infection that will spread to mapped network drives?  Thanks.

    Easiest way would be to download the eicar test file from and then create a batch file that copies it to all the network shares

    How does that sound ?
