VirusTotal Uploader for OS X 1.2
Scan files with 50+ antivirus solutions

VirusTotal Uploader for OS X is a simple tool which scans a file, folder or application for malware with 50+ antivirus engines.

Using VirusTotal Uploader for OS X can be as easy as dragging and dropping a file onto the program window. You get to watch as it's uploaded, there's a delay while the site checks your file with all the main antivirus engines, and finally a "Detections" figure gives you the results ("0/53", hopefully), as well as a web link to the full report.

You can alternatively drag and drop an application onto the program, or an entire folder. But keep in mind that, even though VirusTotal Uploader for OS X is an "official" tool, it's still built using the site's public API. That imposes various limitations, such as only being able to run four queries a minute, so this isn't a suitable tool to scan your whole computer.

Whatever you're doing, a "Log" option displays the low-level details. This seems mostly aimed at developers, but if you're experiencing any program oddities then there may be some clues here (we saw a few "error fetching report" messages, for instance).

Verdict:

Yes, Macs can get viruses, too, but VirusTotal Uploader for OS X provides an easy way to check individual files against all the main antivirus engines.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
