With the very general nomenclature you ascribe to each form of malware. It is highly unlikely you will find a single repository for a comprehensive list for each category.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

In addition to what was said above, your best bet would be to look at Antivirus and Antimalware vendors online threat encyclopdia (or glossary). Like these:
