Hi I'm new to this forum. I was wondering exactly what the sample files were? I'm guessing mostly for people testing anti virus softwares? Or for example if you were downloading a RAT sample is it just a download of the RAT from someone who says its a clean version or are they posting it for multiple people to test and see if the file is infected by someone or not?
