Searching with VirusTotal
VirusTotal stores all the analyses it performs, this allows users to search for reports given an MD5, SHA1, SHA256 or URL. Search responses return the latest scan performed on the resource of interest. VirusTotal also allows you to search through the comments that users post on files and URLs, inspect our passive DNS data and retrieve threat intelligence details regarding domains and IP addresses.

Sending files as email attachments
VirusTotal’s email interface lets users send files via email and receive the scan results in their mailbox. The files are uploaded as email attachments and the results can be received either as plain text or XML. The files sent via email have a lower priority, therefore, the scan results will not always be sent back immediately. Learn more about VirusTotal’s email interface.
