I apologize in advance. Is there some way to download bleeping computer's full file database with csv values (status flag, file name, date, etc.) or even in Excel spreadsheet format, etc?

I am sure this question has been asked many times but dirlling around the site and I could not find this.

Thanks,

Hello hstein,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer, it's good to see you here. Is this what your looking for? The file Database.

If your unsure how this board works, please have a look in the New User Orientation forum.

There is also some most useful information in the Tutorials. :thumbsup:

Sure... I deal with viruses and name lookups all the time. It's quite troublesome to do all the searching online -always entering something in the search box. I would wirte myself a utility to look it up very quickly the way I like to see it and in a local database (or falt ASACII file). Sometimes I have an entire pslist I'd like to pump in -- if I did that through URL access (programmatiucally) it would burden your server and you'd have to cut me off, or do a Captcha deal (ugh!)

I guess you need your revenues from ads.

Nah its not the ads at all. It is just that if we offered that info in such a manner, then there would be a couple of dozen sites using my data with perms. Just not worth the headache.

I would have no problem if you wanted to create a program to do what you wanted to do. Could you put a pause in between requests? Heck I could even create a separate query to make it easier. If you designed something like this I would possible even be interested in hosting it and working with you on a way of creating an xml output that would help.

I'll email you offline in the next week or two -- I am swamped right now. I think I already use your site in a "slow way" where I take a process name and launch four or five sites to see what they come up with when the process name is embedded in what I think is the correct URL but I believe (can't recall) I have trouble with yours. That is, there is no URL I can bild which will do the auto-search for me. Most of the time I do one at a time and send it to all four to see what the agreement is or isn't. No big deal.
