    Hey guys, an online competition to make better ways of classifying malware has just started up, for those of you so inclined. Coincidentally I am taking some data analytics classes online at the moment so will have some fun poking around with this :)

    Post if you plan to tackle this also!

    Oh wow I would love to test my setup (ESET v8 with specific settings) + MBAM Pro + HMPA v3 RC143 + specific windows 8.1 x64 settings against all that malware but my laptops SSD is only 512GB.. and only 100GB free space left :D

    I might download an run this on my HTPC but I would also need to clean the 4TB HDD first :S

    If anyone manages to create a station that runs all the malware, please let me know cause I burn to test my setup and would love to provide my specific setups/settings to you for testing purpose.

    Heh :) Well, the compressed dataset is only about 35 GB, if you know how to script you could extract small groups of the malware at a time for testing ;)
