what is this

http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/
y uploading files to this online service you agree that your files will be stored locally for personal virus collection interests.

Furthermore: this service is by no means 100% safe. If this scanner says 'OK', it doesn't necessarily mean the file is clean. There could be a whole new virus on the loose. NEVER EVER rely on one single product only, not even this service, even though it utilizes several products. Therefore, I cannot and will not be held responsible for any damage caused by results presented by this non-profit online service.

Also, I am aware of the implications of a setup like this. I am sure this whole thing is by no means scientifically correct, since this is a fully automated service (although manual correction is possible). I am aware, in spite of efforts to proactively counter these, false positives might occur, for example. I do not consider this a very big issue, so please do not e-mail me about it. This is a simple online scan service, not the university of Wichita (however, manual correction is performed on a regular basis). Although I try to keep these results as accurate as humanly possible, the only viable conclusion to be drawn here: "100% protection" is a myth.

Scanning can take quite a while, since several scanners are being used, plus the fact some scanners use very high levels of (time consuming) heuristics. Before you draw any conclusions from the reported scan times, be aware this server is composed of very old hardware and scanners will perform considerably better on modern machines. Scanners used are Linux versions, differences with Windows scanners may or may not occur. Another note: some scanners will only report one virus when scanning archives with multiple pieces of malware.

This service costs me money. Server hardware, undonated scanner licenses etc... If you feel this service is useful, please consider a (small) donation so I can keep the service level up! I am going to need a new server soon anyway.

Good bump Dave.
Now I'm looking for my matrixhere floppy to send them a file.
Their banners look decent enough, but anyone can steal bandwidth.

I can only remember the things that I didn't forget Rolling Eyes
