Gather signals to trace your threat. VirusTotal tools extract suspicious signals such as OLE VBA code streams in Office document macros, invalid cross reference tables in PDFs, packer details in Windows Executables, intrusion detection system alerts triggered in PCAPs, Exif metadata, authenticode signatures and a myriad of other properties. Use these properties as IoCs to hunt down badness in your network.

Multi-property searches can be performed via advanced modifiers and threat actor campaigns can be fully mapped through pivoting and similarity searching. Lightning-fast binary n-gram searches complement file similarity searches to find other unknown variants of an attack and different malware pertaining to a same threat actor.


Understand how malware files act and communicate. VirusTotal detonates files in virtual controlled environments to trace their activities and communications, producing detailed reports including opened, created and written files, created mutexes, registry keys set, contacted domains, URL lookups, etc. This execution activity is indexed in a faceted fashion in order to allow for instantaneous lookups.

Dynamic analysis capabilities do not only focus on execution traces but also on running static+dynamic analysis plugins to decode RAT malware configs and extract network infrastructure that may have not been observed during real time execution.
