Slightly strange request but I want to hit my mail server with some nasties to make sure they are being filtered. Don't worry - it's a test account so nobody will click anything they shouldn't.

I've found test sites:

www.emailsecuritycheck.net

and the eicar sending

http://www.aleph-tec.com/eicar/

 

ideally I want something that will send some dodgy .htm attachments, some dubious links etc. All the normal attack patterns of malware / ransomware.

 

Anyone know of such a resource?

 

many thanks

While I understand you may have good reasons to look for specific malware samples, Bleeping Computer is not the place to ask for assistance on how to obtain them.

One of the primary goals of Bleeping Computer is to assist victims of malware infection with removal and to prevent the spread of malicious programs, not encourage them. Therefore, we will not provide links to malware samples or malicious sites where infections have been contracted and spread. Others reading this topic may use the information for nefarious purposes or an unwitting novice user may accidentally click a link and end up infecting their own computer.

Bleeping Computer's main mission is to help people rid their computers of malware not infect them. For legal and liability purposes we do not endorse or permit the sharing of malware samples via the forums. There are plenty of 'in the wild' samples available by using unsafe browsing tactics.

The main goal of BleepingComputer is to help users resolve various computer problems, not to distribute malware samples for whatever purpose. Requesting and/or providing links to live malware or live malware samples does not fall under that objective and is for that reason not something we allow or encourage.

Warez and crack sites are a good source and should only be used from a virtual machine. That's the best information and most specific information we can provide.

For those and other obvious reasons, we are not going to provide more specific information in a public forum. There are a number of sites which specialized in malware samples where questions like yours can be asked. You can register at Hybrid Analysis, MALWR Analysis and VirusShare. You can always open spam email attachments you receive, practice unsafe surfing habits, perform a simple Google search to find malware or even search on "how to infect my computer on purpose" which will provide information such as these articles.Thanks for understanding.
