I first noticed a report of them being down or inaccessible on the 10th. Been sporadic a few times after that and offline consistently for at least two days for me. Don't know actual status or additional information for reason why at this point.

Another feature available with VT is their very convenient VT Uploader.

Add`s an entry in the right click menu under Send To > Virus Total.

Checks the files hash against previously scanned files then even opens a Browser window to the previous scan results or to your own scan.

Very handy.
