Now if you submit an executable file (.exe, .com. .scr, etc), VirusTotal will not only scan it for malware using many antivirus programs but will also run it in a sandbox and tell you what changes it makes.

There is also a list of links to other sandboxes where the behavior of an executable can be analyzed.

Sounds like a pretty handy addition, particularly if you want a suspicious file checked out. :thumbup:

If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal...you become something else entirely. A legend, Mr. Wayne, a legend!

That's really cool :thumbup:

It will defiantly save time when checking out a suspicious file.

So we’re delighted that Google, a long-time partner, has acquired VirusTotal.

Now that's surprising :whistle:.
