Last Friday on September 7, it has been announced via a blog post that Google has acquired online virus-scanning service – VirusTotal. It is a free service that analyzes suspicious files and URLs, and facilitates quick detection of security issues.


VirusTotal

VirusTotal offers a free online tool that scans suspicious files and URLs to detect viruses, worms, trojans, and other malware. The maximum file size currently supported by the service is 32 MB. The service uses 44 different antivirus products to check for malware that their security software may have missed. This service is absolutely free and is also available as Windows desktop application and browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

VirusTotal said via a blog post that it’ll continue to operate independently and will keep its existing partnerships with other antivirus firms and security experts, even after Google acquisition. VirusTotal believes that Google can help VirusTotal to improve their (VirusTotal) service and ensure that their (VirusTotal) tools are always ready, right when people need the service.

Though Google’s existing security service can scan e-mail attachments for viruses and identify unsafe websites and warns Chrome users about potentially malicious sites, but acquiring VirusTotal indicates that the search giant is going to improve its existing security services using VirusTotal’s data.

A Google spokesman declined to provide specifics of the deal, but told in a statement Friday that the security is “incredibly important” to its users. Besides, Google has invested “many millions of dollars” to keep its users safe on the web.

Need to remind you that this is not Google’s first security-related acquisition. The company acquired anti-virus maker GreenBorder Technologies in 2007. It also picked up Postini, a communications security and compliance firm the same year.
