Virus Checker Overview

Scans files for Viruses and Malware On Demand. Specify the Public facing url of the file and our API will scan it and report if file is infected. Great for applications where you download or pass files to clients.

Our simple and easy to use API takes the file url you give us, does an immediate 3 second scan (response time varies upon file size), then reports back to you whether or not a virus was detected.

response is simple to understand:
"VirusScanResults":"Virus Found."
"VirusScanVirusName":" Eicar-Test-Signature"
