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!
