request: have a button to submit to virustotal to see if file has been previously scanned on their site

I've wanted something for a long time that calculated hashes then queried virustotal.com to see if the file has been previously scanned

It appears they have a public API, so perhaps an option to check the file's hash, when hashed, and display the result on the page?  This instead of adding another button on the page somewhere to and add another click. 

Thoughts?

Oh, I see that may not work as there is a report of many different scanning engines results.

This has been included in Release 1.1.2, enjoy!

Under the tools menu is a selection to send the current hash to Virustool.com.  Your Internet Explorer application will open and send a request to check the file in their database.
