submit undetected samples to avast! virus lab
« on: December 24, 2012, 11:19:43 PM »
Hi guys, I have just submitted 55 samples one per one from the chest...
The quetion is what's going to happen now ?
From the video of communityIQ I saw, the AV lab is going to receive my samples with other automated submission, and scan them throught their servers to classify them right ? (please tell me if I'm ok).
And if a sample isn't categorize by the classifiers they get manual analysis right ?

Many thanks, best wishes and merry Christmas !

zip and password protect.... and send to virus @ avast.com    i recomend using 7zip or rar that also encrypt the content so any mail scanner dont block it
zip password: infected
mail subject: undetected sample(s)

That's what I did few minutes ago for 23 samples.
A last quetion : Is it a problem if I gave them a direct link to zippyshare with malware pack which pass was infected ?
Clearly, that's what I sent
"23 samples
(xxx)
pass: infected".
It's ok ?

deepends if they have time to download.....do not know
anyway, if the samples are tested at VT...they sooner or later get them since they are member there



OBS...and dont post download links to malware in the forum as this is not a distribution sentral   ;)

Btw, can I put the zipped file which contains samples in virus chest, then I submit it directly from chest and in comment I give them the password.

You shouldn't have to password protect the zip file in the same way as an email as it isn't going through email servers, but direct to avast.

That said you can't give any individual detail for the samples in the zip.

Please modify your previous post and remove the file share link. You have no control over who may download it or what they might do with it.

Hi DavidR the file share is an example as you see it's not the original, but I'm gonna edit it anyway.
So I do not have to put any password for submission from chest no prob.

the reason for password protecting is to avoid mail server virus scanners to remove/block the mail......if that happens avast lab never get the samples   :'(
the reason for using a zip program that also encrypt is that some scanners can see what is inside
like Gmail, if you zip and password protect a .exe file and try to send it with Gmail, it will block....Gmail will not let you send a .exe file....
if you use 7zip or rar that also encrypt the content the file will be sendt

OK, I wasn't aware that you were using it as an example, but it clarifies the point of not using sharing links for malware.

It is certainly much easier to use the chest for sample submission.

Merry Christmas.
