Upload files to VirusTotal and display the output


Here is an example of how you can use the VirusTotal API to upload a file and retrieve the scan results:

import requests # Your VirusTotal API key api_key = “YOUR_API_KEY” # The file you want to scan file_path = “path/to/file.exe” # Read the file and encode it in base64 with open(file_path, “rb”) as file: file_content = file.read() file_content_base64 = file_content.encode(“base64”) # Set the headers and data for the request headers = { “Content-Type”: “application/json”, “x-apikey”: api_key } data = { “url”: “”, “filename”: file_path, “file”: file_content_base64 } # Make the request to VirusTotal response = requests.post(“https://www.virustotal.com/api/v3/files”, headers=headers, json=data) # Check if the request was successful if response.status_code == 200: # Print the scan results print(response.json()) else: print(“Request failed”)

This code will upload the specified file to VirusTotal, and print the scan results as a JSON object. You can then access the individual fields of the results to display the information you need.
