Vicheck.ca is an advanced malware detection engine designed to decrypt and extract malicious executables from common document formats such as MS Office Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Access, or Adobe PDF documents. ViCheck will detect the majority of embedded executables in documents as well as common exploits which download malware from the internet.


ViCheck is a free service designed to help the public detect new sophisticated malware which is often difficult to detect with common commercial anti-virus programs. By targeting the way that malware hides within document formats, we use cryptographic analysis techniques to heuristically detect obfuscated executable code rather than traditional signature based detection of the exploits themselves.
