Hi there everyone,

Like the subject states, I am an IT Instructor and joined the website hoping to find some good sample Malware to teach my students. I am currently teaching Security + and we are in the process of learning about the different types of malware. Any insight you can provide on how to obtain said samples would be appreciated. We are implementing the samples in a secure Virtual Environment with offline standalone machines.

Hello and welcome, a safer way for students to learn might be from a site like this that explains in great detail how many of the newer threats work and other various details about it. Malware Trends Tracker | ANY.RUN

You may be able to download some samples from this link but remember these samples can be dangerous in handling if not done correctly
Code:
https://cape.contextis.com/
Are you "AdvancedSetup" from Malwarebytes?

That was my fault I requested it. Can you tell me how to gain excess to the malware hub? I was told to reach out to the moderators but finding out how to do that has proved troublesome.
Not a problem :) I am just looking out for those who might not know exactly what they are clicking on.
It is better to share these links within the malware hub or via private message.
