VirusTotal – Microsoft and Google as friends?

Just recently an unexpected alliance was spotted by me (among many others), the company who-is-evil and the company who-is-never-doing-evil (e.g Google and Microsoft, let you connect the pairs as you wish) is sporting an (I wouldn’t say unprecedented, but definitely surprising) cooperation – the new version of process explorer do have a way to interact with google’s virus total database (by sending over file hashes and checking them in a database). Beside it funnily flags skydrive.exe as a malware, do you think this functionality is actually that useful? And what you think about these two giants working together on this front? Or is this just Mark’s own siderun?
