    New but strange online malware scan

    This is a scanner from malware-test.com
    http://59.124.80.246/

    Here's the description:
    I tried to upload a file and see how it performs.
    Then it would bring me to this page:
    http://59.124.80.246/upload.php
    It takes forever for the scanning result to come out. o_O o_O o_O
    I wonder this service is still under construction.

    Does anyone experience the same as mine?

    Hmmm... seems to be a new website. Must be an Asian author. Will need for my wife to translate. :D It looks like you have to send them a file from your hard drive for them to analyze (upload). I guess the program must be located "offline" or is not being distributed to the general public? o_O

    This reminds me of when I email tech support about a program problem and then get no response (from supposedly a 24/7 operation). :D :mad: :thumbd:

    i tried it with firefox but the results didnt load and it went back to first screen. i allowed cookies then it worked fine.

    The results are in plain text, and for the file I loaded it simply said: "There is no virus in the file."

    I tried again by uploading a very small file. It succeeded this time.
    It's just a plain text saying "There is no virus in the file".

    Too bad! I suppose this is going to be the first spyware malware multi-scanner (:D) which use many engines to scan the same file.

    Hopefully the scan is still under construction, and more meat will be added to the scanner. ;)

    Malware-test.com is the site that has done 10 rounds of antispyware program tests.
    I thought that name was familiar.
