VT Hash Check enables a more streamlined query of the Virus Total malware scanning service via right-clicking the target file to produce results.
It really makes verifying a file against the Virus Total engines easy as it eliminates the need to navigate to the site. However, if you are checking a URL, IP address, or domain, you will still need to head over to the Virus Total site to perform the search as this is for files only.
One important thing to note, you will need to have a free Virus Total API key to use this app. It is simple to obtain once you have registered an account through the VT site.
Once you have your API in hand, you can start using VT Hash Check. The operation is straightforward. Right-click on the file you want to verify and then select Check File Hash from the context menu. VT Hash Check then starts to process your request. If the file has already been scanned previously, then those are the results you are provided with. If it is a new request, VT Hash Check will permit you to upload the target file for analysis. Results may be saved in plain text, CSV, or JSON. VT Hash Check comes with TrID built-in for identifying unknown files. A simple and convenient app for scanning a file without the need for unnecessary navigation.
