looking for XP Antivirus 2008

Marketing_Insists used Ask the Experts™
I'm looking for XP Antivirus 2008 (or it's recent reincarnation) for demonstration purposes on a sandboxed VM.  (EICAR test files aren't sufficient for what I need)

So far, all my searches only result in remedies to remove it.

Know where I can find it?

I saw the question and just had to join the discussion.  I looked around and can't find anywhere to download it.  You'd think with all of the computers being infected that it would be easy to find.  I know my customers have no problem finding it.  I can't find a way other then visiting as many questionable websites as possible.  Enjoy, and thanks for the laugh.

That's a good question....you can search at the Global Virus Map


maybe you'll find it, beware don't get infected :)

I know this is not answering the question, but I had to laugh out loud when I read your comment.  My users don't seem to have difficulty finding every piece of malware under the sun also.

It is funny!   My AV logs show it being removed (or detected) from user machines every day - but I can't find it myself!  

Though I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the users browser history is cleared by the time they bring their machine to me...

register and search for the malware samples. All samples are compressed and protected with this password (infected)


Ah - found it at last!
a variation of the FakeAV.  wasn't a problem to escape from in google Chrome - though beware it prompts for you to download Setup_295.exe


note the hzzp instead of http - I don't want to post a direct link.
