VirusTotal Uploader 2.0

We are proud to present the new version of VirusTotal Uploader with the digit '2' in the version string.

There are quite a few changes introduced in the new version, including the old functionality being tweaked, as well as various new features being added. At the same time, we managed to keep the Uploader very light-weighted, so it won't take neither too much disk space (below 0.2 MB) nor CPU power.

At this time, we would like to thank you for the feedback we have received from you so far, all the e-mails were read and taken into account while designing the second version of the Uploader, greatly affecting the shape of the final release!

Let's start with the original functionality tweaks!

First of all, you are now able to upload up to 5 files at a time, which comes in handy in case of multiple-file malware queries. Additionally, the file limit has been increased to 20 MB per file.

Second frequently requested tweak is a pre-upload check if the file is already present in the VirusTotal database. In this version, the Uploader calculates a hash of the file before uploading it, and checks if it appears in the database. If so, the file doesn't get uploaded, saving both time and transfer. Of course, you are still able to force the uploading of the file for reanalysis.

Additionally, many old functionality bugs have been fixed.

As for the new features: you can now execute the Uploader as a standalone application! In this mode, it is possible to upload a selected process executable, selected from the process list, to the VT, you can drag&drop files for uploading, as well as enter an URL address with a suspicious file, which will get safely uploaded to the VirusTotal for analysis!

You can download the VirusTotal Uploader 2.0 here. Any feedback is welcome, so if you like our application, have found a bug, or have a feature request, don't hesitate to write us.

Hi there,

nice tool, but it is not digitally signed!

That is very bad!

Please sign the installer with an digital certificate.

Re: VirusTotal Uploader 2.0

Nice :) thanks for useful

I think you can add this faster scan function in new version :
+ report status of the selected file in scanned history of the server ( by SHA256 , MD5 )

if the file has scanned then we can decide upload or not upload again.

It is useful with big file size , save time upload and
the server

Have fun ,

Re: VirusTotal Uploader 2.0

Thanks for developing this tool. Adding right-click functionality moves the use of your software out of the "too much of a hassle" into "let's find out" for the majority of users--if they find out about it! I suggest you write to LifeHacker, My Digital Life, and a few other blogs which cover software, and have large readerships, and ask them to take a look at this tool.

Second, now that we can scan with just a URL, rather than needing to download the file first, it would seem like developing a plugin for Firefox would be a natural progression for the product. Then, we could be at the download point and check the file from the browser without needing to copy/paste the URL into the standalone app.
