Rules For Malware Requests

Post by a_d_13 » Fri Nov 09, 2012 4:54 am


This forum is for requesting malware samples. Please read these rules before posting any requests:
  1. If you ask for samples, we assume you know how to use them (or at least how to make them work in a test environment).
  2. Malware request must be in the following format:
    1. Malware names(s) which you want (more names = better), names better take from AV companies.
    2. Hash of particular sample (optional), MD5 or SHA1. This increases your chances to get what you want.
    3. Short description of malware you want (optional), link to AV site/article etc describing malware.
  3. Posts which does not match above format will be DELETED.
  4. Before asking for malware, use the search function - maybe the sample (or other sample from the same malware family) you're looking was already posted here.
  5. Do not ask for MS-DOS, Windows 95/98/ME malware.
  6. Do not bump your requests. First bump -> you will be warned, your post will be removed. Second bump - you will be banned.
  7. This thread is only for requests and sharing. If you want to discuss specified malware you requested - start new thread.
  8. No offtopic posts. All offtopic will be deleted, user will be warned.
  9. No "thanks" posts.
  10. Requests from users with ZERO (0) posts, "thank-you" only posts, or requests-only posts not allowed. Posts will be removed and user will be banned, depending on situation. Make your effort for this place before asking anything.
