HOW TO: Provide samples and links properly!

For testing and training purposes, discuss where to obtain malware, and/or provide your own samples.
Forum rules
ALWAYS start a NEW thread for a NEW topic, or for a DIFFERENT malware sample than the thread is actually about.
ALWAYS zip your malware samples with a password and name it in the file comment, recommend: infected
NEVER post a working URL to download malware, always break it by replacing the HTTP:// with HXXP:// or similar, so that it can't be clicked on by accident!

HOW TO: Provide samples and links properly!

Just reiterating what is already in the forum rules.

1. ALWAYS zip your malware samples with a PASSWORD. I recommend: infected

2. When uploading your password protected samples, be certain to put the password in the FILE COMMENT section just under where you actually upload the file.

3. NEVER post a working link to download malware. ALWAYS replace HTTP:// with HXXP:// or similar, so it cannot be accidentally clicked on!!!

Violating these rules will get you booted from this forum -- maybe the entire board. So don't.
