  • Search for files using VirusTotal Intelligence query syntax.
  • Download files.
  • Manage your Malware Hunting YARA rules.
  • Launch Retrohunt jobs and get their results.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
