Windows 7: VirusTotal + HerdProtect - Check Files with Simultaneously


VirusTotal + HerdProtect - Check Files with Simultaneously

Check Files with VirusTotal + HerdProtect Simultaneously

Check Files with VirusTotal + HerdProtect Simultaneously

The main purpose with this solution is to check downloaded software before running or installing it!

Feb 18, 2015: New version of the script code and .bat file. Fixed a bug that caused the script to fail and stop further executing if Herdprotect detected a file as type "Malware". The Herdprotect info would in those cases be missing from the command window, but the Virustotal info for that file would still be displayed.

information   Information
This will add a new option to the Windows explorer context menu "Send To" so you can select file(s) and use the right-click pop-up menu to check the file(s) on VirusTotal and HerdProtect in one step. The result will be displayed in a command prompt window. If any antivirus product detected something an analysis report will be opened in your browser.

VirusTotal.com is a multi-engined scanner service from Google with more than 50 different anti-virus products including:
AVG, Avast, Avira, BitDefender, ESET, F-Secure, GData, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, Microsoft, Norman, Panda, SUPERAntiSpyware, Sophos, Symantec, TrendMicro and many more.
herdprotect.com is a similar service with some additional antivirus engines but ATM doesn't support single file scans or uploads.
The files won't be uploaded or actually scanned as only file hashes are used to find previous scanning results for every specific file and version!

Why check on both VirusTotal and HerdProtect?
HerdProtect has more AV engines than VT, plus they claim they have algorithms that can rule out false positives. So if VirusTotal detected something HerdProtect might still say it's clean and report the detections as "false positives" (wrongly flagged as detections). Therefor to check both would be a plus but there's no tool or utility to do that. Herdprotect don't support single file scans or uploads, but their knowledge base is available via HTTP through file hashes which is how this solution works.

What does the .bat file actually do?
The command line utility sigcheck from Sysinternals can check files on VirusTotal, and since I couldn't find a similar tool for HerdProtect I had to create one. So in short sigcheck is used to first check the file on VirusTotal. Then it's used again to get the SHA1 hash, then it will build the proper URL to HerdProtect's KB using the hash and file name stripped from certain characters, and then download the page source which is like visiting that specific URL but without opening a browser. Then parse the result from the herdprotect web page to find status, detections etc. And to make it similar to how sigcheck handles VT detections, if a HerdProtect detection exist it will open a browser to show the result.
Note   Note
This solution is dependent on HerdProtects current web layout. If that would change so the HerdProtect check doesn't work properly anymore, check back here for an updated version!
warning   Warning
A browser window/tab will open every time VirusTotal or HerdProtect detected something, so don't check too many files at once!



Here's How:

1. Download Sigcheck.zip from Sysinternals(Microsoft) download or from its homepage: Sigcheck

2. Extract sigcheck.exe either in your path or for example in a new folder where you will save or create the .bat file in step 3

3. Download or manually create the .bat file.

Multiple file selections are supported, but any selected directories will be ignored.

If you control outbound firewall connections you must allow the windows system file cscript.exe TCP 80, 54.208.30.101 (herdprotect.com) and sigcheck.exe TCP 443, 74.125.34.46 (googlehosted.com)

If you see a message 'sigcheck' is not recognized as an internal or external command it means the .bat file couldn't find sigcheck. Just copy sigcheck.exe to the directory where the .bat file is
Example of checking 3 different files at once, with 3 different herdprotect results. Only one is opened in browser (marked in red):

Hope you don't mind but could I ask a couple of questions regarding this?

Is this used in addition to an installed anti-virus product such as MSE? It reads like that is the case and that this is just an additional check that you can perform.

Does either Herdprotect and\or VirusTotal have to be installed? I think that the answer is no as both are web addresses but I would like to be certain.

Thanks

I use this myself primarily to check new downloaded files, but also to check any other files I'm suspicious of. Even if you have a good anti-virus, you shouldn't rely on that it'll catch everything because it's just not possible with the amount of new malware "released" every day. So this is an easy way to check the files with all major anti-virus products (and maybe some questionable ones too that more often show false positives, but that's the way it is)

Not even checking with all these different anti-virus products can guarantee the file is 100% clean, but it's much better than only having your own anti-virus product check it. And for example most anti-virus products are bad at detecting PUPs - Potentially Unwanted Programs, not necessarily malicious but bad IMO, and some of these products can detect these.
If I check a file and it shows as unknown, I then upload it manually on virustotal.com For HerdProtect you can't do that at the moment, not even if you have HerdProtect installed.

It's a standalone solution that only requires sigcheck.exe besides the batch file. The other functions that are used are part of Windows. So no, it doesn't require either HerdProtect or VirusTotal to be installed

Tookeri, please add to the beginning of your script a line:
Code:
cd /d "%~dp0"
to fix the problem with drag&drop object on a bat-file from another folder.

Hello Tookeri,

Thanks for making that script, it will come in handy in my toolkit.
I did find some problems though:
  • Herdprotect changed layout so detection info is moved to a new div and uses now a text called 'Explanation:'.
  • The script will scan anything as long if it is not a folder and will error on those, such as things that do not exist.
  • As the post above, the script will not be able to use the tools it needs if run from another dir with cmd.
  • The variable 'AN_DATE' has problems with parentheses (try adding anything behind the variable in a echo, you'l see)
  • The code is kinda chaotic in my opinion.
  • The embedded script 'geturl.vbs' could be separate so to not have to write a file in temp everytime the script loops. (not really a problem, but the script would look cleaner )
  • Instead of setting 7 variables to nothing, you should be using a setlocal and endlocal to keep a separate environment for every loop.
  • Filenames that contain special characters like parantheses will break the script.
While finding those mishaps, i also restyled your script in my own image, fixing the above (except the special characters breaking).

getUrl.vbs
Code:
Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
url = objArgs(0)
localFile = objArgs(1)
With CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
.open "GET", url, False
.send
a = .ResponseBody
End With
With CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
.Type = 1 'adTypeBinary
.Mode = 3 'adModeReadWrite

The main script expects getUrl.vbs and sigcheck.exe to be in the same folder as the script, but the folder containing those files could be easily changed by editing in the main script the path 'CD /D "%~dp0"' to CD /D "%~dp0\config\" for a subfolder.
getTab.vbs has been removed and replaced by a real tab in the variable 'TAB' so to have even less operations (to bad for forums who convert tabs to spaces though ).

Well that's all, sorry for the lecturing, i am sorta a perfectionist and love to tinker with useful scripts and code people written.

Hopefully it will be useful to someone.

Thanks for the input, Midori. I'm sure it'll be useful to someone.

I'm not going to comment on everything right now as I think most things are minor issues like having a separate .vbs file, using setlocal/endlocal, restyling etc.

Regarding the 'Explanation' info I've only used the 'Status' info but both sections from it and the second section is the one with a short explanation, for example (2 probable false positive detections). My script still works and HerdProtect hasn't changed anything in their layout about the 'Status' information. I think the shorter explanation is enough.

My instructions are to select one or a few files in explorer and use the right click context menu to run the script, not by drag and drop. The instructions should be easy to follow even for non-experienced users.
The only real problem I'm aware of are the special characters one, but it should work for most files and especially programs that are the main purpose for this script. I may be more of a perfectionist in the logic of the program and not the actual code. And again any special characters in file names may brake that but I still think it's a minor issue. But I will adjust it for parentheses:

Code:
set SHA1FILE=%SHA1FILE:(=%
set SHA1FILE=%SHA1FILE:)=%

or for your example with DelayedExpansion:
SET "SHA1FILE=!SHA1FILE:(=!"
SET "SHA1FILE=!SHA1FILE:)=!"

True, i posted these not to incorporate them into the script (I posted my version for that), but to help you and any person wandering around here.

I tested your script again and on a positive(detected) return of the second FOR loop containing the text 'Status:' in the still returns the html code:
Code:
<br style="clear:both;">
This renders the script broken(defect) or when fixed looks ugly.

I also checked the html page of herdprotect and am not able to find that different short explanation of the detection near 'Status:', just only below it the "Explanation:" which i wrote about.

Yeh, i know. It's just what i use it for, a rightclick menu is not useful to me so i changed it to be more to my taste.
You can change the error-text though if you wish.

Thanks again! I've looked at it now and the second Status info I'm referring to is surprisingly missing from non-zero detections that are NOT false positives Detections that are false positives look like this where the info inside the second span tags is what I meant as the second Status info:
Code:
<div class="key">Status:</div><div class="value"><span class="text-green">Clean</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;<span style="color: #999999;">(2 probable false positive detections)</span></div><br style="clear:both;"></div>
So a little tricky and easy to miss. I must have tested it only on non-zero detections where all detections were classified as false positives. Herdprotect seem to have different HTML codes for different status types. I noticed that for Adware detections the Explanation info is missing but a Description info is there instead. But not always: sometimes there's none of them but a "What does it do?" section instead. So very confusing!

I'll have to take a closer look at the Explanation info for different detections as well as zero ones and see if I maybe can switch to that.
But maybe the best approach is to only get the Status(Clean, Adware etc) and ignore the rest including Explanation and Description info. After all, if it's a non-zero detection the report will open in a browser where you'll get all additional information. Luckily the Virustotal info is processed before this error might occur for Herdprotect
