Reputation points

Actions like uploading files and voting are rewarded on MetaDefender Cloud with reputation points. Users receive points by:

  • uploading files that are detected as infected by four AV engines or more

  • submitting vulnerabilities that are validated and accepted by OPSWAT

  • voting

For each upload/submission, the user receives 1 reputation point. In order to obtain these points, you must be signed in to your account first.

You can check your reputation points score on the user account drop-down, from the upper right-hand side of the page:

Top malware submitters

Consists of a list of the current month's top malware submitters. The list is generated on a daily basis and includes the users who have submitted the most infected files from the beginning of the month.


For each user, we display the nicknames from the user accounts, in order to hide their real names and avoid unintended exposure. Therefore, some of the usernames may be the default generic ones . Changing the default username can be done on the Account Page.

Top Voters

The users with the most votes since the beginning of the month. Updated daily.


OPSWAT appreciates anyone in the community who submits malware and will send out prizes and extended limits for top contributors. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow our blog.
