The VirusTotal service that is currently in the possession of Google provides information and extensive analysis about the file and its "behavior" in the system, which is built on the basis of 57 antivirus engines. For some time now it has also enabled the scanning of URL links, which are analyzed by 63 engines from different manufacturers.

All interested parties are referred to the article " VirusTotal from the kitchen ", which explains how VirusTotal works and why it can not be used in comparative antivirus tests.
