I already shared a test tool like that from HitmanPro.Alert some months ago. This one can be used to test your AV's protection against Ransomware, credential theft and exploits. Not sure if it's working for Sophos products exclusively but I still wanted to share it for the ones interested. As I am using Sophos Home Premium at the moment I was able to get a few blocks. Here an example:

Memory exploit (Data Execution Prevention):

The test tool is more advanced than the HitmanPro.Alert test tool and is a little bit newer. Last version seems to be from 2019.

Feel free to share your results! :)

Microsoft Defender with ConfigureDefender at MAX settings could be quite interesting for this testing scenario for example:

Anyone can try that? :unsure:

Nice. Same results like everybody else with BitDefender, every "attack" succeeded. Seems to be treated as a "Trusted" vendor.

EDIT: Like, seriously, how can you release a "test your antivirus tool" and digitally sign it with a well-known certificate such as Sophos? Like... LOL, these results are to be expected

Better than for example Ransim Ransomware Simulator by KnowBe4 that already gets detected before you can even run a test. 😄
