Google acquires VirusTotal

Google it would appear have acquired VirusTotal.

For those not familiar with VirusTotal it offers a service to scan and analyse suspicious files and URLs, againt over 40 AntiVirus engines. VirusTotal is often used to test custom exploit payloads against (despite it being a quick way to get the lifespan of your payload reduced).

Re: Google acquires VirusTotal

I wonder why Google would acquire VirusTotal. There seems to be a reason they aren't willing to share...

Any ideas?

Huge news, I use VT frequently, and I hope as they say, google puts its power behind the company without infringing on the way the system works.

Re: Google acquires VirusTotal

Will they continue to submit signatures to AV companies as VT has been thought/known to do?
