From Virustotal API web page, I understand that we can write a python code to check against a list of URL from text file.
Can anyone help me with this? I would like to see if the links that user post on our forum is legitimate.

Thank you so much,

Where are you getting stuck?  They have sample code on their site:  https://www.virustotal.com/en/documentation/public-api/#getting-url-scans.  The code formatting is messed up in my IE version.  But it's fine in Chrome.

my dream is like having an ultimate tool to compare the hash value, urls to virustotal and get the results back in a excel format form. But my programming skill is not that good, so i'm wrestling with everything now. ^_^
