    Hello everyone.
    I'm a cybersecurity researcher, and I need a lot of hashes of ransomware malware so I can locate different ransomware binaries. I had a couple of resources like virustotal but I need more.
    I have a way to check if they are actually ransoms, so every hash you can address me to will be helpful.
    I've seen this post: https://malwaretips.com/threads/what-happened-to-malware-requests-topic.56431/
    At Malware Vault and I understand that I can't ask there for that hashes.
    Also by now I've seen only couples of hashes per post, I need bigger resource if exists.
    Thanks :)
