Recently, the internationally recognized online suspicious file analysis service website VirusTotal.com announced that Baidu Antivirus was successfully added to VirusTotal as one of its online engines. This is yet another endorsement in the professional security field for Baidu Antivirus, which has already received Checkmark and OPSWAT certification in addition to other outstanding achievements in 2013.
VirusTotal, a subsidiary of Google, is a free online service that analyzes files and URLs enabling the identification of viruses, worms, trojans and other kinds of malicious content detected by antivirus engines and website scanners. At the same time, it may be used as a means to detect false positives, i.e. innocuous resources detected as malicious by one or more scanners.
VirusTotal’s mission is to help in improving the antivirus and security industry and make the internet a safer place through the development of free tools and services.
