Other Places to Obtain Malware

For testing and training purposes, discuss where to obtain malware, and/or provide your own samples.
Forum rules
ALWAYS start a NEW thread for a NEW topic, or for a DIFFERENT malware sample than the thread is actually about.
ALWAYS zip your malware samples with a password and name it in the file comment, recommend: infected
NEVER post a working URL to download malware, always break it by replacing the HTTP:// with HXXP:// or similar, so that it can't be clicked on by accident!

Other Places to Obtain Malware

If you know of any places that distribute malware for testing/experimentation, post them here. I'll start..

http://kernelmode.info has a Malware forum where tons of samples may be obtained.

https://www.grc.com/malware.htm is Steve Gibson's (GRC / Security Now podcasts, Spinrite creator, coiner of the term malware -- does he really need an introduction?) This part of his site is very new, and only has some CryptoLocker samples as well as a ZEUS/ZBOT sample.

Thank you for this ;)
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.....Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle. I'm afraid I can't explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?
