    I have a file that I'm quite sure is malware, wanted to send the sample to AVG but I can't seem to find a way to do it. o_O

    Re: How do I subit a sample to AVG?

    If you want a quick confirmation about a suspected file try the following websites that run your sample in real time against a battery of common anti-virus and anti-spyware programs.

    http://www.virustotal.com/ - Windows based scanners

    http://virusscan.jotti.org/ - Linux based scanners

    They both show which programs detect an infection in your sample - and confirm if the sample has been seen before. They will also pass on new detections to most of the major anti-virus and spyware protection companies.

    Follow Macstorm's instructions; or else you CAN just send your samples to technical support - the submission will still be processed, but the response might be a bit late.
