Hyperball is a file forensics utility with a built-in malware checking tool. The application is aimed at users who need to rapidly analyze a file or check whether it is malicious or not. It features a PE file analyzer that collects and displays relevant information about the PE fine, including section information, packer or archiver information, and it also generates the relevant hashes.
The utility harnesses the power of multi-engine cloud scanners offered by VirusTotal to allow users generate a malware report following the scan of the file with 42 distinct antivirus solutions. There is no need to install any antivirus on your PC in order to start scanning files. Hyperball comes with a HEX file reader for displaying the contents of the file.
To our knowledge, there is no file analyzer to both suppoer PE analysis and online virus checking. Also, the VirusTotal uploader explicitly asks for upload permission, so the user does not inadvertently upload confidential files, applications or malware samples under a non-disclosure agreement.
The application is aimed at security professionals and users working with file forensics, but also at regular end-users looking for an easy and eye-candy way to see whether a file is infected or not
