We are currently hiring several new technicians and we want to test them by giving them an infected computer/virtual machine and see how they would fix it/tackle the issue.  

Is there a website that keeps malware/virus/trojans/etc for computer professionals for this purpose?

Some advice: be sure the new techs don't connect an infected (virtual) machine to the network for obvious reasons...
