VirusTotal overload?

Postby ColoradoChris » Tue Sep 29, 2009 6:32 pm

Just went over to VT for some research and they have a message about being overloaded and wait time. I didn't think it would be that bad. I submitted the sample and I was 1500 in queue!! What's going on? Think it's an attack? I just can't see how that amount of demand is even possible. VT's not THAT popular. But I have no clue. Maybe it's the paranoia in me, but that's what my first thought was. Let me know how long it lasts.

I'm not seeing that particular issue, but then: it's now the following morning.

It makes me wonder if there are individuals out there that do automated bulk-testing to try to seed their database with more mutations. (It's possible.)
