Before companies like Microsoft and Apple release new software, the code is reviewed and tested to ensure it works as planned and to find any bugs.
Hackers and cybercrooks do the same. The last thing you want if youâ€™re a cyberthug is for your banking Trojan to crash a victimâ€™s system and be exposed. More importantly, you donâ€™t want your victimâ€™s antivirus engine to detect the malicious tool.
So how do you maintain your stealth? You submit your code to Googleâ€™s VirusTotal site and let it do the testing for you.
