Hello,
I read with delight the topics of Malware Hub / Samples but I am often frustrated because I cannot know which were the first antiviruses to detect the samples.
I think it would be interesting to attach a screenshot of the first result from VT and not only the link.

Thanks @silversurfer
Yes because if you look VT the day after the number of AV which detect the sample increase...
True, but it's extra important to try understand that a VT result alone, is not everything or 100% conclusive ( false positive etc ). AVs can also from time to time catch samples static even if not shown on VT.

Personal I see no issue add a screenshot along with the sample post. Will bring this up also with the rest of the group in the Hub. Thanks for the suggestion. (y)
