I infected another computer through Google Drive/or Gmail, I used no other devices(USB Sticks, Cds). Now it has the same Trojan(Eldorado...)

How can I proceed now with Gmail? 

If we assume, I have treated the computers, what should I do with Gmail/Drive? 

As I know, that Google just acquired one of our favorite antivirus tools, VirusTotal

Does that mean, they really use Virus Total, while uploading the files? 

Are there any better Tolls, than Virus Total, or some, that supplement it?


There must be a virus in Gmail, that is not detected by Virus Total and it installs the Eldorado Virus.

Hi and :welcome: to BC!
Infection is possibly via opening attachments or files shared via google services.
The best possible way after disinfection is to change and tighten up security (email passwords, security questions, 2FA etc)
Virus total is an online service to scan for threat in a suspecious file. IDK if it was integrated with other google services.
Similar to virustotal,Jotti's Malware Scan  , ThreatExpert  , herdProtect
