#1
Advertisement
Most of download files from the Internet regularly, be it a PDF, songs, movies and much more. You prevent malware getting into your computer with the help of Anti-Virus and other necessary tools. While all the anti-virus software is not perfect, here is the tool you can make use of.

Today, we are going to see about a tool called VirusTotal. This is a website that allows you to upload files up to 128MB in size and will then use over 50 scanners to check if it contains any malware: viruses, Trojans, worms and more.

This is like a mix of all the scanning engines including Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Avast, McAfee, Malwarebytes and many more names. Once the file is scanned, you can check out the status such as how many of the engines detected a problem, a 'safe-o-meter' for quickly gauging if a file is safe, and you can check detailed information and a lot more than you probably need for.

How to check?

For Mozilla Firefox and Chrome users, you can check out and download the available add-ons that will warn you if you’re about to visit an infected website.

Otherwise, you can paste the URL you want to check. By using its tools, it will quickly show you if a site is clean or not.
