CIRCL VirusTotal tools

Description

A set of tools to interact with the services from VirusTotal.

Requirements

All the tools require an API key which you can get from http://www.virustotal.com/ for free for the public API. It also exists a private API. See VirusTotal for more information. The number of requests is usually limited to 20 per 5 minutes. Higher intervalls are possible upon request.

Configuration

A configuration file at ~/.vt-tools.conf is mandatory.
It contains the following:

[Global]
public = True
private = True
public_key  = YOURPUBLICAPIKEY
private_key = YOURPRIVATEAPIKEY
public_requests = 20	# default
private_requests = 300	# default

An example configuration file is included.

Description of the tools:

  • vthash.py
    • send one or multiple hashes (MD5/SHA1) to VirusTotal and get a human readable list of detections back and some statistics. The --dump option returns the list in a computer readable format.
    • Example: md5 test/* | cut -d"=" -f2 | vthash.py
  • vthash-pro.py
    • same as vthash.py (just a symlink) but uses the private API of VirusTotal (which gives much more information)
  • vtupload.py
    • send one or more files to VirusTotal. Returns a unique ID to requests the report later. Scan might need some time. Instead of getting the report, using vthash.py after uploading does work, too.
    • Example: ls test/* | vtupload.py
