    Hi guys, question.
    For many files that are shared here VirusTotal scan shows that Norton finds WS.Reputation.1.

    How do i know weather it actually has a virus.

    WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec's community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec's reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.
