I know there are a few websites that allow you to upload a file and scan it to check for bad things but I can't remember any of them and don't really know what to look for. Could someone be nice enough to link me to one please?
Also If I download the file just to upload it, will it still be able to infect my computer? I know that its an .exe file but I want a report on it. Thanks for any help
In theory it is safe to download a questionable file to upload it for scan(s) as long as it is not executed. How ever you may get more then you bargain for by just visiting a site that hosts the questionable file(s). These can come in the form of drive-bys or unrequested downloads that you have no idea are happening.
