Malware and threat analysis by Alien Labs

Submission samples (files and URLs) are automatically run through the Alien Labs malware and threat analysis engine, which includes multiple layers of automated checks, analytics and machine learning (ML). Your files and URLs are quickly analyzed using these systems — first with static analysis. Then, depending on the file type, it will go to our sandbox for dynamic analysis, including analysis of network activity.

Submit samples via the web or API

OTX provides multiple methods for third-party security tools to ingest its valuable threat data. In addition to the web interface, users can leverage the OTX DirectConnect API to automatically synchronize OTX threat intelligence with existing security monitoring tools.

If you have privacy concerns around a sample you are submitting, you can leverage the Traffic Light Protocol (TLP) options to shield sensitive information. TLP employs four colors (white, amber, red, or green) to indicate expected sharing boundaries.
For URL submissions, our analysis engine automatically scans the URL, and if it includes other threat artifacts (such as a suspicious file), those artifacts will be automatically submitted for analysis.
