November 29th, 2021 - SSO, Extended crowdsourced YARA detection and new relations

What's new? 

  • SSO Authentication. Users can now sign in  or sign up to VirusTotal via single sign-on. 3 identity providers have been added: Google, Twitter and GitHub. Microsoft will soon follow, SAML soon thereafter. The new SSO feature works with pre-existing VirusTotal Community accounts, in other words, if you already had an account tied to your Gmail account, for example, you may still use SSO as a more convenient way to log in to VirusTotal. 

What has changed?

  • Numeric identifiers for crowdsourced YARA rulesets. Numeric identifiers for existing Crowdsourced YARA rulesets have changed. This means that searches like crowdsourced_yara_rule:002735f19d|PyInstaller may return 0 results if 002735f19d is an old identifier. All links in our UI already have the new identifiers, so this should affect only those users that stored the identifiers on their side and may be using them to run periodic searches.
