Virustotal and pastebin??

 Share

Hi guys, i used to download so many stuff from around the web.

Some sites are using pastebin for sharing download links in, so i go ahead to retrieve the link from inside, usually those are Google Drive links.

 

For safety, before opening any link, i used to scan it in virustotal at first to make sure its safe.

 

but recently i started to get warnings from 1 engine usually saying its malicious, but other engines are saying safe, actually i don't give any care about, because that engine is not smart enough in scanning like high-reputation antiviruses programs (KasperSky, Avast, Avira..etc).

 

But now, i was going to download something, scanned for the pastebin link to find KasperSky engine saying its malware, while all other engines are saying safe.

 

So i'm asking: is that pastebin really safe to use?

I generally don't pay much mind to a virustotal result with one positive on it, but given it's Kaspersky it might be worth paying attention to. I'd give it a week or two for some virus definitions to be updated on virustotal and see if any more positives pop up or if the Kaspersky one goes away. If it hasn't changed after that time I'd say it's probably fine.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well, to be honest, i'm tracking this since a long time, for more than 2 months, the same result is it, nothing changed, Kaspersky saying malware and 1 low engine saying Malicious but it doesn't matter, the most important is KasperSky.
