Where can i get different viruses?

Dear SF.

I am going to make a big Anti Virus test soon, which will be done on my old desktop.
The test will be testing which AV removes the most of the viruses, and which AV that does it the best.
AV's like Morro, Norton, Kaspersky, IObit, Panda and AVG will be included in the test.


So now i need some different viruses, for the test. Please do not link me up with viruses which causes to fried Hardware.

Thanks on advance

Powned XD

Id say, just go on a nice search for keygens, they always have a nice variety of viruses, Trojans and Malware.

Your bound to catch something nasty

Lol. There is not that many viruses out there that causes hardware frying. I'm sure those types are high up on A/V priority detection lists anyways. AV Companies can't make money if their customers have a busted PC now can they?

Just thought it best to remind everyone that this site has a Zero tolerance policy on any linking to viruses or virus baring sites.

Please Remember that Discussion is a good thing but no links of any sort

Can you get viruses using Webmail?
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get viruses just by opening an email in webmail (such as Yahoo Mail or GMail), or if you would have to download the attachments. I was under the impression that if there were any viruses in your webmail account, they couldn't harm your computer unless...
