VirusTotal Comments

VirusTotal should not be relied upon

Negative Comment by avaiki
about VirusTotal Dec 2016

. . .

Sorry, I'm not a fan.

I've yet to see any site come up with warnings.

This is even when my own AV or the browser has blocked me from a site for Malware - yet the same vendors do not raise an alert here.

I've raised this gap with VT before, and been fobbed off with some nonsense about different gradings or some such. Point is, if it's a problem for your AV, or your browser, it should automatically register as an alert on VirusTotal.

A note on WOT: ratings appear to include provision for political grounds. You'll probably have to fiddle with the settings to get WOT to only alert users on security grounds.

about VirusTotal Jun 2011

This tool has a feature to use URL to the file you are planning to download so that it can be checked before you actually download it. All you need to get is the URL for the file. That can often be made by rightclicking the download link and then clicking "Copy Shortcut" or something like that. Then paste the shortcut in Virus Total Uploaders URL-field and click "Get and upload". Good One!
