    Lightbulb Submit suspicious files to Virustotal the easy way

    The guys at Virustotal created a small program to send suspicious files without first having to open your browser and connect to their website.
    It's about 140KB, (MD5: 9edab310d6d226164026e555a2daed97) and it enables you to directly send files from your system using the context menu.



    New in version 2 of this tiny program is that it checks if someone already uploaded the file(by means of a hash check) so you don't need to upload it again - unless you really want to.



    After submission it opens your browser to show the results of the file being scanned by 41 different antivirus programs

    (Be sure to allow out-and inbound communications for this program in your firewall)

    thanks for this

    i think Eset will do this thing automatically, many times i get a message from eset that 'submission of suspicious files to Eset server is waiting for your approval' it means that they are automatically doing this work....

    This facility is almost available in every antivirus....
