Malicious software pieces like viruses, worms and bots are currently one of the largest threats to the security of the Internet. Antivirus Labs have invested great Money for analyzing and reversing viruses, but for our case we can perform the analysis using some useful tools on our PC.
Letâ€™s start with www.virustotal.com , if I feel that I have a suspicious file. First what I will do is to upload it to VirusTotal. VirusTotal gives the user the ability to analyze any file with more than 40 Antivirus products. With the latest signature definition, this brings a clear idea not only if your file is safe but also to know which AV is effective. The file can be uploaded directly from the site using SSL or sent over the email. You can also download the uploader to your PC and install it which enables you to directly send files from your system using the context menu.
