Online File Scanners - upload and find out what's safe

review from ClifNotes, Dec 2005, permalink _ Security Tools


Tony from TopFreeware recently wrote to tell me about a free file scanning service. At VirusTotal's website, you can upload a file and they'll scan it several ways and give you report back.


I posted it to TeMerc's security forum and asked them about this. They said this one is good and suggested several others that are good also.


These sites are a great way to find out if something is safe before you install it. They aren't perfect, but they do help.
