VirusTotal is a free online virus/malware detection tool that can detect malware by scanning files and URLs online. And Google just acquired them.
This means that Google is going aggressive on cracking down on malwares and virus infected websites online.
Google’s “detection tool” is pretty impressive so far, I recall having seen websites with warning signals right in the search results.
But with VirusTotal, Google sure is all set to make sure it has all the possible weapons in its inventory.
