Virus testing!

Hi all,

Does anyone know where I can download virus files to test in a VMware environment? Want to do a demonstaion at work on how bad plugging random USB sticks can be .. I want the guys to see the effects and what will happen if they keep doing this...Just an IT Secuirty lesson to make them a little more wise and smart

I want them to see it wipe all their work and files or spread to other sticks...hypothetical of course and in a safe environment
