Looking for Malware (actual malware, not infection)

Nov 19, 2013 8:50AM 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.

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.
