    Looking for virus collection

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a site or a resource somewhere I can find that contains an archive of viruses doing the rounds. I can find plenty of descriptions about them from a/v vendors but I'm looking for the binaries and/or code as part of some honeynet research I'm doing.

    Same goes for spyware etc ...

    If anyone can help me out, or indeed if you have you own little collection I'd love to hear from you.

    Cheers.

    Unsecure places that not recommed to visit, can contain viruses.
    Just surf the web and scan you temp folders or download small size files and test them with AVs.

    So you can made you own collection of viruses.
    Be carefull, you computer may not survive hehe ouch....

    Er... There are several ways he can configure his AV to ignore them..... You might want to look into all the settings on your AV system..... It might surprise you.....

    There are *many* sites that host binaries. This is actually a good question because I know that there are other RE junkies here on AO like myself.

    This one is my favorite:

    Note that if you are a dummy, you will become infected when messing with these samples. They are the real McCoy so to say.

    Check out the archives. Make sure you have any realtime AV scanning turned off or it will clean the files you DL. Be aware, that in the US, you can not even have the src or binary in your posession, regardless of the reasons.

    Yes Tiger~ I saw that as well

    If it were true there would be no US AV companies? and a lot of security researchers would be out of a job.

    If there is legislation in that area, it must have some kind of "malicious intent", distribution/deployment, clause/rider in it?

    It is certainly not illegal over here...................hell it would criminalise anyone who got themselves infected

    Now there's a thought..............................
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
