  • Command makes use of the Malware Hash Registry (http://www.team-cymru.org/Services/MHR/). It parses the current directory and subdirectories and calculates the md5 hash of the files, then prints the name and sends the hash to the MHR for a lookup in their database. The 3rd value in the result is the detection percentage across a mix of AV packages. Show Sample Output
