X-Ray is a complete security software that sends suspicious files to 35 different antivirus companies (Agnitum, Antiy Labs, Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, QuickHeal, ClamAV, Comodo, Dr.Web, Emsisoft, ESET, F-Prot, F-Secure, Fortinet, Hacksoft, Ikarus, K7Antivirus, Kaspersky, Kingsoft, McAfee, Microsoft, Norman, nProtect, Panda, PC Tools, Rising, Sophos, SUPERAntiSpyware, Symantec, TotalDefense, TrendMicro, VBA32, Vipre, ViRobot) for manual analysis by virus analyst professionals with a click of a button.
An antivirus software cannot detect all viruses which is why they also depend on users to submit samples to their virus analyst for manual analysis through various methods. It can be either through a web form, email or a special tool which makes it very troublesome to submit samples because every web form is not the same and they have different prerequisites. For example, some wants the file to be sent in raw format and some wants you to compress the file to ZIP or 7z. Some requires you to use a specific password for the ZIP file and some don’t. Other than that, submitting samples to SUPERAntiSpyware requires a special tool called SUPERSampleSubmit. It is nearly impossible for an individual to submit samples to multiple antivirus companies because it is just way too troublesome, until X-Ray has been created.
