    Since I'm not in the habit of downloading and executing malware, I would find it a more useful, realistic, practical, and interesting challenge for them to put the malware samples into existing web-based exploits on their test pages and let users go to the page to see if their security can block the download/execution of the exploit.

    It would be easy for them to get a current exploit kit floating around the internet and have the exploits point to their malware samples from their test page.

    Sounds like he's trying to re invigorate his business.

    My reaction to this: yawn.

    If it talks like a Matousec sound like a Matousec walks like a Matousec then it is a Matousec and not to be trusted.

    Indeed,the proliferation of rogue AMs show it's much easier to just let the user install the malware for them.
