    KaZaA is a good place, or Direct Connect. You can actually find viruses that people trade online via these programs. They are the original files that people recieve via e-mail. You might want to try them. If you do, however, you do so at your own risk. I would suggest that if you want to test out your virus scanner, you install it on another computer that is not connected to a network and that is expendable. Once you do this you can put hte virus on and see if it decets it. If it does or if it does not, when you are done, reformat the hard drive and start anew.

    Prize,

    I can send you a copy of Trojan.Downloader.Inor.b if you want it.
    It'll be in a hotmail message, so I'll need an email addy.
    BTW, can you get me the URL on that Eicar website?
    (I wanna test my email scanner).

    ok
    the EICAR site should be eicar.org
    and u might want to upload it to the site in case any of the visitors also want to test their antiviruses.

    In the US, KaZaA is not illegal. Downloading copyrighted works is, however.

    If you want to test things other than EICAR, then it is going to be a live virus. If you wish to test your AV, then you might want to download ASM or other code, strip the infection routine(s) and see what happens. Do not be a tard, work a little.
