Maybe there is some way. But it may produce only virtual security.

In the last months I've tested many malware mail attachments, p.e. with  
"http://jotti.org". About 4 hours after sending time perhaps only 10 of  
the 20 scanners which "jotti.org" uses had found a virus, some scanners  
needed more than 24 hours for updating their signature file.

When you use an online scanner than you can be sure it doesn't detect  
really new malware - you have to use some other tool for searching such  

Viele Gruesse!
