"part of any regular virus scan"
the regular ongoing 'spam-cannon' related virus flinging that is done to my systems, some of the links, documents etc can be detected to have a virus , or come from a domain which is heavily virally active previously.
However when typically I check something 'very dodgy' with virustotal.com, now owned by google, some actual malware are only discovered by a single one of the fifty/sixty/seventy virtual environments.
Well, the cyberattack pros have rooms with fifty/sixty/seventy PCs each running the latest AV engine, and tweak their code until no-one gets it; and/or some AV services (owned by google, say, or yandex) might be rather partial in their effectiveness - I see no ships!
I still have a few scanners, run them alternately, and VirusTotal.com (owned by slurp) is still just about working
