Today we are proud to announce a new VirusTotal Uploader for OS X. It is available for download on our Desktop Applications page. Internally it uses our public API to schedule uploads of files, with the exact same limitations that any public API user would experience.
● Drag and drop a file to the VirusTotal Uploader in order to scan it with over 50 antivirus solutions.

● Drag and drop a Mac application to the VirusTotal Uploader.
● Allow you to "Open With" in finder the VirusTotal Uploader to scan a file.
