Where do people find real samples of malware to run through their labs? I am starting to work in security research and always wonder about that. It’s not as easy as it would seem. Eicar is great and all, but when you need to either figure out what this binary does, or if your systems can detect and prevent it, that all goes out the window.
My biggest fear is having the authorities show up because of my searching, I suppose I could go all dark web, but didn’t know if there was a more above board way.
