Virus Scanner API

Virus scanner API is an extra layer of security that helps protect your computers, phones and tablets. They scan files for viruses upon upload into an application, quarantine malware programs until a developer can review them and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information found within a file’s contents.

The heart of a virus scanner is its blacklist — a database of all known viruses, malware and other types of threats. During a scan, an antivirus program looks for the digital “fingerprints” of these viruses and compares them with those of incoming files. If the fingerprint matches, a virus scanner will notify the administrator of an infection.

Defending Your Digital Fortress: Leveraging the Power of Virus Scanner API for Robust Threat Detection

Some viruses change their digital fingerprints as they spread, rendering traditional anti-virus software ineffective. To combat this, modern malware authors employ techniques such as polymorphic and metamorphic programming, which encrypt portions of the virus to avoid detection. Luckily, next-generation endpoint protection and more recently extended detection and response (XDR) solutions provide advanced virus scanning technology to counter these threats.

Filestack makes it easy to integrate a virus scanner API into your applications. Using the VirusTotal API, you can verify that uploaded files are clean and secure by checking their contents for viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, and ransomware. You can also obfuscate data in a file, including passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information, and block XML External Entities and other threats embedded in documents. To get started, download our VirusTotal Postman collection or clone it from Github and open it in your favorite postman client.
