Working with VirusTotal from PowerShell


Virus Whole is a wonderful service. It is a single place the place a whole bunch of antivirus engines can confirm if the file, URL, area identify, or IP Deal with is trusted or not. In fact, it isn’t a silver bullet, but it surely brings great worth, and I typically confirm recordsdata I obtain earlier than executing. Since I launch a variety of new or up to date PowerShell modules on a weekly/month-to-month foundation, I assumed it will be nice to ship newly launched variations straight to Virus Whole so I can have them checked earlier than anybody executes them. I additionally hope to stop false positives from some antivirus distributors which will tag my modules as malware as a result of they have not seen the DLL or PowerShell module on this type earlier than. I’ve seen it occur to DBATools, so why not attempt to push my modules earlier than customers even use them?
