Ok so this might be a strange request and I'm not sure if anyone can or will help me.

I am looking for anyone who knows where to actually find the executables of any of the latest rash of Antivirus / Antispyware apps that are fake such as MS Antispyware, Antivirus 2009, Antivirus 360. I have collected so far Spyguard 2008 and Perfect Defender 2009. I am looking to find these so that I can study them inside a virtual machine.

I have also searched for on various shady sites and tried to pickup the Vundo trojan which is linked to downloading several of these apps, also unsuccessfully. My clients get these daily and I spend 2 hours searching hitting every bad site I could think of with no antivirus / firewall to speak of and still can't seem to get infected.

Thanks for anyone that might be able to e-mail or send me in the right direction. I am not looking for a link to be posted here, that would be a danger to others who are unfamiliar with these programs.

Well I certainly read your topic wrong...

Just look for crackz, warez, and other illegal site and you are sure to catch infections.

Past that, we cannot start a thread on how to become infected - for good or bad use. Sorry.

For the record, I am removing my original topic - on cleaning - and one other on a location to become infected. If you have any questions, please PM me.
