I came across the Symantec forum that discussed two websites, Virustotal.com and ThreatExpert.com, which scan uploaded files for viruses. Virustotal.com was discussed on Bleepingcomputer and several people "confirmed" it's legit. But I could not find any discussion about ThreatExpert.com. Could any expert on this forum help verify the site?
I wanted to submit a file to ThreatExpert.com for scan but my file was ~ 8 Mb, which is bigger than the 5 Mb limit. (file seems clean from Virustotal.com scan) ThreatExpert says users can also download an submission applet to submit a sample. Not sure if this would allow a 8 Mb file to be scanned but also, no idea what the applet would do to my computer. Any suggestion? Great many thanks
