VirusTotalScanner is a program that you can use to quickly scan any file using VirusTotal, a website that regularly gathers reports created by all popular antivirus applications.
The program checks for existing scan results stored by the web service, but it is important to note that it does not allow you to upload files that are not in the VirusTotal database.
Simplistic user interface that features a somewhat outdated design
The interface is made up of one window with a neatly organized structure, where you can point out a file using either the file browser or drag-and-drop support.
Starting the scan procedure is done with the click of a button. VirusTotalScanner also calculates and displays the MD5 and SHA256 signatures of the file.
View VirusTotal scanning logs in a convenient manner
As for results, the app loads the VirusTotal web page in the main frame, revealing the detection ratio, analysis date, result for each antivirus program, and other useful information.
The application also allows you to search the extracted MD5 and SHA256 hashes on the website directly, but no other notable features are offered.
No-frills utility that provides easy access to VirusTotal scan results
VirusTotalScanner has a good response time and finishes a scan job pretty quickly, while using low CPU and RAM, so its impact on system performance is minimal. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash.
In a nutshell, VirusTotalScanner delivers a simple solution to verifying any files for malware by using the VirusTotal website. It enables you to search for existing logs based on a file’s hash data, and it displays this information within a basic application window. However, it does not make it possible to upload files to the web service directly, and it features a rather disappointing user interface.
