Hello OCN.

Sry if im in the wrong topic, but does anybody know how I can GET a virus?

I need either a list of malicious websites, or a link to a dangerous file eating worm virus or ANYTHING else of that nature!

Thanks!

Have a chat with the boys and girls at "cult of the dead cow"

Or just browse random p0rn sites.

That'll do it!

AntiVirus2010 is a VERY EVIL bit of EvilWare. Surefire way of killing a Win install very quickly...if that is what you REALLY mean to do.

I WARNED you, BTW, pardon all the caps-did I say that I warned you?

I take it that you want to test your antivirus program. Just keep it updated and trust it. Don't go looking for trouble.

xD I tried this once, I hopped on IE and just went surfing on some dodgy sites, and didn't pick up anything :s

I swear you can only get them when you don't want to, then I went to some malware analyzer forum where people just post direct links to viruses, but then I was missing a .dll and the virus wouldn't run ^^

Hah Thanks a bunch guys!
+rep all around for answering my unusual question!

... for all you curious minds, nah I never use anti-virus or firewalls. I was just thinking how hard is it to get a virus?
and I'm about to show my friend what happens when I do in fact fack up my OS. (I simply pull out my acronis disk and restore from the day after I reinstalled Win7)

^.^ good day to all

A NEAT trick of programming is the Fork Bomb. BTW. Not a virus simply a recursive command the overwhelms your machine with process forks.

VERY neat. Works on OSX, Windows, and Linux.

If you just want to test an AV out, use eicar. This is a test file that doesn't actually do anything, but that AV vendors have agreed to put in their signature data bases so users can make sure the real time AV component is working.

X5O!P%@AP[4\\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

copy-paste that into a text document and save it as EICAR.com

And how does that help if personal information is already stolen?
