Google has acquired startup VirusTotal, alternative up a hatchling but usually used cybersecurity player in a move that could grouse up defense for its internet services.

This will help search Giant google to weed out infectious content from Gmail, Google Plus and pages shows to search users.

Google has a long track record working to keep people safe online and we look forward to fighting the good fight together with them. VirusTotal will continue to operate independently, maintaining our partnerships with other antivirus companies and security experts. This is an exciting step forward.

VirusTotal operates by accepting requests for virus checks, running every available protection software on the questioned document or pages, then distributing the results to security vendors. Because those results include the documents and websites submitted, the service is considered a valuable source of information by the security industry about new threats and potential targets.
