How to you check your downloads for malicious code?

Hi Community,

I have NOT found any issues with anything that I have ever downloaded from this website, and a big thank you to everyone who contributes.
On a general note, how do you check the plugins you download are clean of any unwanted code?
For example I found [font="Open Sans", sans-serif]VirusTotal.com , [/font]have you ever used it before? Are there other, better tools out there?

Thank again to this great community.

Virustotal is great before starting any .exe or scan files you downloaded.

To scan plugins or themes for malicious code, get malcare (plugin) or TAC theme checker. then further you can use Exploit Scanner to check manually.

[font="Open Sans", sans-serif] is just a google font, like Arial.

VirusTotsl id definetly my go to for checking scripts. So far I haven't found any code that was bad from this site but you only have to miss it once to ruin your entire site so I would say, always check everytime before installing on your website.

Bit Defender tends to work or Nod32 is > than McCaffee or other anti-virus tools that are sometimes worse than the malware they "protect" you from resource wise.

Virus Total is definitely the way to go. No problems.
