Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come
out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

It is from vxheaven.com. you have to download a dvd full of compressed file. extract it and you will get all 66700 viruses and then create a dat file from md5 or crc checksum. (thats what i had done) (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
This is just a example . you can build definitions by downloading the entire virus collection (as kaspersky does) and make defs every month. to download viruses goto http://vx.netlux.org/faq.php#whole (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Hi Ajay, Can you guide how do i integrate anti-spyware and anti-rootkit modules. I have the samples with me and generated the signatures. I understand it needs registry scanning but your code only scans files. So how do i do that? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
when trying to download the virus definitions from vxheaven forum, one gets this message: You don't have permission to download the attachment because you have less than five posts and one karma on this forum. besides, for 270000 samples it's a 45Gb download, 62Gb unpacked. kind of... large. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Hi ajaybnl, ajaybnl.comuf.com/av.mdb is not found. please re-up (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
