New version of Autoruns integrates with VirusTotal

February 1, 2015 – 5:01 PM

The new version of Microsoft’s Autoruns (version 13 – released last week) integrates the VirusTotal API for quick analysis and verification of unknown and questionable processes.  After running the program, just right-click on any entry and select Check VirusTotal:

Windows 7 - Clean-2015-02-01-15-58-52

You will need to accept VirusTotal’s Terms of Service by clicking Yes:

Windows 7 - Clean-2015-02-01-15-59-17

Once you click Yes to the Terms of Service prompt, Autoruns queries the VirusTotal API with the hash of the process and returns the results to you in the VirusTotal column:

Windows 7 - Clean-2015-02-01-15-59-35

If you want Autoruns to automatically check every process, you can configure this in Options -> Scan Options and selecting Check
