Si chiama Yomi e consente la rilevazione e la gestione in sicurezza di malware informatici. Questo porta VirusTotal ad avere fino a sette sandbox integrati, oltre alle sandbox proprie di Virus Total per Windows, MacOS e Android.

Italy’s antitrust opens abuse of dominant position probe into Google

Italy’s competition watchdog said on Friday it had opened an investigation into alleged abuse of a dominant market position by Google in the smart device sector. In a statement the antitrust said Google had allegedly refused to integrate the app “Enel X Recharge”, developed by utility Enel, in its Android Auto app. Through its Android operating system, Google has a dominant position in the smart device operating system market, the regulator said. The probe will be wrapped up by May 30 next year. (Fonte: Reuters)
