    Depends when one last used it. I haven't been on that site for a bit, and the layout looks different to me.

    Bloody hell!! The slogan on their blog is just :eek: :eek: ... :D Inside VirusTotal's Pants... Disgusting... o_O :argh:

    Anyway... I see they added new services in their URL scanning, such as Spyeye and Zeus trackers. They took away BitDefender, though. They don't explain why it was removed. Was it their decision or BitDefender requested it to be removed? o_O

    Heck. I scanned a few URLs and BitDefender is never show. I'm talking about URL scanning and not file scanning. Did you scan URLs and BitDefender shows?

    -edit-

    I scanned one more and it shows! I wonder if it only appears when it flags an URL? Odd.

    As you can see from the screenshots, BitDefender results only appear when it flags. Is it just for BD to look great on the picture? o_O The others appear every time.

    I hope so. Otherwise, it's a bit shady if BitDefender requested it, IMHO.

    The URL scanner seems much faster & it is looking good. I like the big red/green thumb icon. :thumb:

    I'm a bit ambivalent about the new favicon though. ;)

    VT is working again here. Last month, for some unknown reason(s), it wasn't able to get a finished analysis - and I tried multiple times in different days.

    BTW, great improvements.
