The latest issue of Tech Support Alert comes with some handy sites to bookmark. On one hand, they link to a couple of sites that allow you to check any downloaded files for using a number of anti-virus scanners at once before you run them:

[1] http://virusscan.jotti.org/
[2] http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html

They also link to a site that will help identify malware that may not show up in virus definitions yet by identifying certain characteristics and scoring the file, the higher the score, the more suspicious your file is.

I think I’ll keep those handy, it never hurts to check out the files you’re downloading, just in case.
