Scan File with more than 36 antivirus at same time

Scan your file with 36 Antivirus without installing them


Last Saturday I was chatting with one of my friend and saw that he was playing some song that was downloaded from a domain that is infamous for spreading virus with their mp3 songs. I said him that you should not use these kinds of files that are downloaded from infamous location for viruses.
He said yes he knows about it but he was not able to find those songs anywhere else and he was dying to hear those songs. He asked some suggestion for me and I had the best solution for him as this is a site that scan your file with multiple antivirus and it gives you a complete satisfaction that your downloaded file is not infected with virus or it is infected with virus.
For testing some particular file you just need to upload the file and it will give you scanned result in a short time.
After his question I thought I should write about VirusTotal on my blog but I had few question in my mind and I did not want to write about on my blog so I sent a mail to and I they gave me answer of all of my question in just couple of hours in a trail of 4 mails so I can assure my blogs reader that its very reliable also
I had following question for them and answers are there ..

Question: At present you give scan with how many antivirus?
Answer: 39. There are also some internal betas from several AV vendors, but that
Results are not shown in the reports.
Question: If it’s a 5 MB file how much time it will take to scan that file completely?
Answer: There's no any specific answer to that question. Scanning time doesn't depend only on the size of the file, but on its nature, and how it behaves with each scanner heuristic features. That way, a given 50K file can take far longer to scan than a 5MB file
Question: Do you support other compressed file other than zip, If yes how many?
Answer: Files are scanned in the same format they're sent, so compression support depends on each scanner. Some support more formats than others
Question: what is the maximum size of file can be scanned from your server?
Answer : The size limit at this moment is 20MB
Question : you scan these file on your own server or you scan them using online virus scanner engine of different antivirus online scanner?
Answer : Samples are scanned in our own servers, although some scanners use 'in the cloud' technology that somehow would get into an hybrid approach so to say.
