Where to find "XP AntiMalware 2011" malware?

I am currently testing different Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware software.  Currently testing Vipre (GFI, ex-Sunbelt).  In the past we have been hit a few times with that  XP AntiMalware 2011 BS.  Would love to know if anybody happens to have a working "link" to purposely try to infect a test computer to verify effectiveness of the different Anti-Virus software solutions.  If not, any personel experience with the effectiveness of Vipre or any other Anti-Virus software at stopping this particular Malware?  Currently using Mcafee Viruscan with Anti-Spyware add-on, and it does nothing.

If you can find an infected file why not just use virustotal.com to check to see which engines identify it as a virus?

To be truthful when it comes to malware such as XP Antimalware virus, not much will stop it depending on how you get it. Most of the bad malware, more severe, are done by the user without knowing.

For example, if you have the best antivirus software, really secure and everything, but one of your users goes to a site and has to download a "plugin" to watch a video or something. If they click yes and download and run that plugin that could be the virus in disguise. Only problem is your antivirus software will not see it because the "user" said "YES" to downloading it without knowing. Like I said that's just the truth when it comes to malware. Antivirus can only do so much. If there was one that stopped everything then everyone would have it...

OT: XP Antimalware can be pretty severe and might be hard to replicate. You can try smaller less severe viruses though.
