Anyone know where if there's an archive or compendium of spyware / ad-ware?

I'm interested infecting a few machines of my own for analysis.

If there isn't already there really should be one; something similar to the http://vx.netlux.org/vl.php archive.

If no such thing exists, would anyone be interested in starting one?

Reply or PM me if interested.

Reexamine my original post. The links you provided are in no way relate to the subject of my post.

In a roundabout way there is - it's called the web.

You can examine the MVPS Hosts file for known malware sites, or the IE restricted sites added by IE SpyAd. Also, SpywareBlaster will have a collection of bad sites listed in it's updates.

I recall a competition several years ago to see how infected a system could get before it stopped working - you might try searching google for that.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Wicked usasma! Thanks for the info.
Could you possibly find me a link for that competition?
I was unable to get anything on a quick Google search.
And what do you mean by MVPS hosts file?

Thanks again.

MVPS Hosts file: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
IE SpyAd: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/resource.htm
SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

I'll have to look for the spyware competition. All I can remember is that it was an article (implying that it was in a PC magazine - either online or in print) and that it was several years ago. I'll look around and see what I can find - but I'm afraid that it's on my "paperweight" (the hard drive that held all of my bookmarks, articles, etc that died about 1 years ago).
