Hi,

Just wondering where I can find examples of Antivirus 2009 , XP, pro and other malware on the web and install them on my XP virtual pc. I would like to try a few techniques in removing them.

Thanks in advance!

Look in google, go to warez sites / use P2P programs. You'll get something sooner or later

Turn off your firewall as well.

Also, click on any ads you see.

Crashing isn't good enough. :p He wants malware.

To summarise: disable the firewall, use IE6, no AV, and, if possible, use XP RTM (no service packs).

If you install Virtual PC using Windows 7 Professional and your Virtual PC gets infected with a virus / malware etc is there any way it can infect Windows 7?

Yes, it could easily xfer over the ports that the host \VM communicate, or over tcp/ip as any normal 2 pc's might.

Yep it could run automated exploits on certain services(whether virtual or not)but if your patched its much less likely. Ofcourse there could always be holes in the vmware itself.

If you want to infect a PC, it's better to infect a real one as you can isolate a physical PC.
