This is a pretty cool site for when you need it- You can scan a file BEFORE downloading it. Unsure of a link? Unsure of a download? Run it through VirusTotal before you actually put it on your computer. The only drawback (as you see in the image above) the maximum file size is 64 MB, which can be limiting. It’s a pretty cool tool that I wanted to share.
