    At the time of this post, the Kaspersky online file scanner does NOT work: it does not scan files, reporting "clean" for whatever you upload, but actually not scanning any files as the info below suggests.

    Note that the file I uploaded is actually marked infected by both the Kaspersky Personal Pro application and the "complete" online scan.

    So don't use it for your tests. Or use the regular "complete" online scan.

    As soon as somebody verifies that the online file scan works again, please post it here. :)

    I use F-Secure's from time to time, so don't see a need to bother. However TNT was asking in his post for someone to let him know and post here. Could that be you? :D I see he posted that it works now so your off the hook this time. ;) :)

    I took it for a spin, and nothing was found. NOD appears to be protecting me pretty well. :D
