    According to the article, it's database is not that big yet, only 300 signatures, with plans to add another 6000.

    yes..it seems I didn't catch those 300 signatures. :D Anyway the names of them are taken from which vendor being known the fact that different AV vendors have different names for viruses. o_O

    they have the signature.txt to see which samples do they index. :D "ve noticed only now. :p
    Anyway, those websites listed leads directly to .exe, or other types of files, you can't get infected by a Java Script or something accessing that page, isn't it?

    I'm not quite sure what you are asking but if you are asking if you go to some of the sites where the .exe's are located you probably will get infected which is why they give a Warning.

    Thanks for the link to that search engine, it can be useffull.
    I searched for trojan and open a few pages, they look harmless.
    There are pages with downloads of software, firmware, interesting.
    If I would not know, that those pages are infected, I would use them.

    Could be helpful but I was trying to find something for 30 minutes and didn't get one link... TheTOM_SK - IE 7.0 is cool.

    When you look for a trojan, copy link with exe and remove anything behind last "/" and you will get working webpage. But I would not sugest to visit those sites without proper protection! ;)

    Uhhh... no, they really don't, at least not the one you're showing in this picture. Those utterly useless "search engines with links" like the one in the picture are more often than not part of malware rings, and most of them looks exactly like that.
    Some have even exploits running on the pages themselves.
