    I need some URLs of sites that you catch malware and spyware from so I can test the software that's supposed to protect you from it.

    I need URLs other than gator--I mean the kind of stuff that gets downloaded to your PC without you requesting it or installing it.

    I googled and couldn't find anything. Thanks.

    Sorry bknows,

    We can't provide you with any such links because we don't allow linking to harmful programs or any type of malware. Granted, this rule was originally made to prevent linking to viruses and hacker sites, but given the severity of some of the newer spyware these days, it can often be just as destructive.

    We can discuss this type of malware in general terms, but we can not allow any such URLs to be posted here.

    I wasn't asking for clickable links, just URLs, but I can understand why you don't want that posted even.

    Not a good posting start :(

    Any suggestions? Bascially, I want to test some plug-ins to ISA server for filtering malware, etc. Have any other ideas? Thanks.
