What is a virus scanner?
A virus scanner is a program that scans your computer for malicious programs (such as viruses, worms and Trojans). It then removes these files.
The main advantage of using a virus scanner is that it does not require user intervention; it can scan the entire disk or just specific folders or files. The disadvantage is that most antivirus programs are not 100% effective at detecting new threats, and may not be able to detect all types of malware.
Why it is better to use virustotal API to scan a file instead of relying on your desktop antivirus software.
Different antivirus programs have different detection rates. If you want to make sure that your file isn't infected, using an antivirus program with high detection rate will be more reliable than using one with low detection rate. Virustotal has excellent detection rates because it uses multiple antivirus engines to scan each file.
Our browser extension makes use of the virustotal API so you can scan your files using this browser extension.
