Hello FTR:

More bang for the buck with VT vs Jotti.  I suppose if you have the
time, run them both.  VT has some extra opinions, and some overlap.

I have used them at least 20 times and I don't know how they could be
considered untrustworthy.
They just use multiple scan engines and give you the results online.
They draw no conclusions on their own, AFAIK.
What, in particular, are you concerned about?

I don't consider them untrustworthy, I was just asking because I
uploaded a small file for them to scan. After the upload completed,
the site said I was 9th in the queue and it would be about a 2 minute
wait befor the scan started. While I was waiting, I noticed a fair
amount of activity on the connection so I was wondering if they were
scanning for something. It was more activity than I expected to to see
while just "waiting", so I thought I would ask here.

Thanks to all for the comments.
