PDFiD On VirusTotal

Filed under: Malware,My Software,PDF — Didier Stevens @ 16:59

I know my posts here are rather emotionless, and that’s how I prefer them for this blog.

But this time, I’m very proud and I’m not hiding it: my PDFiD tool is now running on VirusTotal!

Thanks for your work Julio!

PDFiD will give you statistics of some very basic elements of the PDF language. This helps you decide if a PDF could be malicious or not.



  1. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with you in the integration of the tool. I’m sure many users will find that new tool output really useful 🙂

  7. Ok…I’m dying to know, how do you do those fantastic screen grabs?

    Oh, and the tool is awesome too! 🙂 As well as VirusTotal.

  8. Thanks!

    As I couldn’t find free software that suited my requirements completely, I had to buy a license: TechSmith Snagit.
