Looking for Malware (actual malware, not infection)

by StonerRoller / November 19, 2013 8:50 AM PST

I was wondering if there is a way to get a copy of malware to research and dissect for a malware class project?

I am looking for the KeyBoy backdoor that was discussed this past June. it is a Macro-Virus that uses MS Word.

This is my first post and I am sorry for the noob attitude.

On the web, I doubt if you'll get a link posted here.

Just download something from Download.com and get first hand experience at removing the malware. Devil ...Digger

We Don't Provide Such On This Forum

This forum provides security and malware REMOVAL advise and posting actual malware is beyond the forum policies. Sorry, but you'll have to find it elsewhere.

As such, I'm locking this thread.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
