Google has released VirusTotal Uploader for OS X, a Mac version of the popular utility for Windows that lets users upload files for scanning.

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 folder to the VirusTotal Uploader and schedule the analysis of its content.
● Drag and drop a Mac application to the VirusTotal Uploader.
● Allow you to "Open With" in finder the VirusTotal Uploader to scan a file.

Karl Hiramoto, a Technical Solutions Consultant at Google working on VirusTotal says, "Hopefully this will lead to VirusTotal receiving more Mac applications, diving deeper into an increasingly targeted OS by attackers and allowing antivirus companies and researchers making use of VirusTotal's backend to build stronger defenses against these threats."

VirusTotal was acquired by Google in September 2012.

Help for free!!? I don't think so. You better think twice before downloading or uploading with Google or Samshit stuffs. They are the famous giant thieves in disguise. I'm not convinced with their products... Sorry.

Google and Samsung are always good at helping / supporting and contributing. They don't care of they are your enemy and someone who is stealing their ideas and suing them in courts. Help is help. Basically its a help and support for iSheeps

I work for a technical company, the only reason you upload a data to an uploader is not the benefit of scanning for virus for the uploaded already has a virus filter before it leaves the host but for the receiver to evaluate and copy the code in designing an API. Would think twice before sending a confidential file. Google is the modern Thief for morons.

@Techno1 --- You're answering a moron, what kind of comment of his did you expect? Oh and BTW, you already know the slogan "don't feed the troll", don't you?
