WICAR.org - Test Your Anti-Malware Solution!
Each test will open up a new browser window at http: //www. wicar. org/test-malware. html. You may wish to try each test systematically. Ideally, all tests should be blocked by your anti-malware defenses. If a blank window loads, then it likely was not detected/prevented.

WSA is not an anti-exploit type tool, and as such provides blocking tech in the form of the BrightCloud reputation service. Webroot Support
My habit is to second opinion thru VirusTotal and WSA on-demand scan.
I recently had two samples that were [U] not immediately known classified by WSA.
Both samples were not immediately classified on download nor classified with on-demand scan.
Both samples were well known detected thru VirusTotal.
Within a few minutes both downloaded executable samples were known detected thru WSA.
