Hello Bleeping Computer community.


I have been using VirusTotal to upload and analyze suspicious files, whenever one of the security scanners I use find one. As well I use it to verify URLs,hashes and domains if needed.


However quite often scanners find suspicious registry entries which are not possible to upload to VirusTotal for analysis.


Is there a service similar to VirusTotal where I could submit suspicious registry entries for verification?


Thank you for your help.

There is no central repository service that I am aware of. Depending on what security product detected the entries, you can always check with their support for assistance with identification.
