Where can i download viruses/malware for a test environment?

Last Modified: 2013-11-22
Hello! This is an odd request - I am trying to set up a test environment where I can test various anti-virus and anti-malware products. Apart from the tedious process of going to the sources of malware, does anyone know of any repository of viruses and malware for this purpose?
