    I think that you need to talk to your tutor for some guidance. Right now I believe that there are some 22,000,000 different types of malware so I would recommend that you pick on something interesting and specific, as the subject is just too large.

    The only place you are likely to get examples is on the "darkside" unless you are an accredited professional or you know someone with examples they have captured in the wild. Hence my suggesting your tutor. Another possibility is your Uni's IT people as I am sure they get asked to clean out malware quite regularly, or even a local PC repair shop.

    Not sure where you would get malware these days but you might look at Metasploit, Milw0rm, Offensivecomputing, and the cult of the Dead cow.

    what ^ said

    you have no idea what it feels like when you forget to change document.open to document.write and launch a virus only to discover you forgot to disable wireless and you're connected to the network.

    Of course that never happened to me, it was a friend of mine

    I had a friend like that as well taught me to use labrats (stand alone crash dummy/test boxes) and dedicated pseudonetworks.

    Congratulations...............your next post will be 1,000
