After a trojan made it through our software last week I managed to talk the power that be to let me ditch Symantec for something better.

I am trying out some anti-virus software for my company. I set up a mock network like we use. I have everything up and running. All of these computers are old and will be reformatted after the test.

I am in the process of testing out a couple of anti-virus software packages. Any recommendations of things to test?

I have already done the Google thing and came up lacking. Limewire provided me some nasties. I found a keylogger and another spy program via Google. I have yet to go the porn route, I can't really do that with the kids running around. :tongueout: Any other places that are prime with bad stuff? :wavey:

Go to Google turn off filter results in preferences.
Search for virus test file (not actual viruses)

Otherwise these terms should show up real viruses, but don't blame me if bad things happen.
virus collection warez
virii collection warez

Been there done that.


I am looking for bad things.
I forgot about the warez stuff, thanks. :wavey:
