So, here's the deal. I regularly submit rouge software to malwarebytes taken from machines from where I work, which is a local PC repair shop. Normally I see java exploits and rouge antiviruses, very few botnets/trojans and other "heavier" gauge malwares. I am quite adept at software and hardware troubleshooting, and an advanced windows\linux admin.
I've tried re-tracing steps by setting up a secure environment to monitor how a rouge works and building simple batch files to repair changes made to the registry, file system, MBR, and Windows\system32\drivers folders to make my job easier. Naturally, I've started using programs like OllyDebug to attempt reverse engineering through self-taught methods.
For whatever reason, I can never seem to infect my own test machine, even with outdated browser/windows/java and going to the rouge hotspots. I have yet to reach Malware Hunter status on MWB forums, so I cannot access already submitted files.
I am not asking anyone to post links on this thread, as that could potentially endanger unintentional users, but rather to have any good sources for acquiring malware/virus samples in a PM. Any advise anyone may have is more then welcome
