Instead of just uploading a file for it to be scanned with a traditional Web form, this section offers a number of different additional options, including:
- An email interface that allows to send the file by email and receive a (possibly XML-formatted) report by email also.
- An standalone client for Windows that features contextual menus in order to send them to VirusTotal, analize programs currently being executed, etc.
- (NEW) The VTZilla browser add-on that allows to check files and URLs in Web pages.
- An API than can be used as a Web service.
Additionally, VirusTotal has been making more and more emphasis on a relatively new service for scanning URL reputation.
Very, very interesting. This service is available also at the VTZilla add-on.
