Wow! I haven't knew and heard before that malwares could detect where are they running. SirMalware, do you install the VMWare tools for VMWare or VM Additions for MS VPC? Those malwares might be detecting whether they are running in a virtual environment or not by checking those softwares ;) .

It really is a very good way of testing the malware ;)

But sometimes I'm afraid to test worms as they may spread to the host O/S if the virtual machine software has security holes. That's possible, isn't it ;) ?

Normally it is impossible but you never know. There are a lot of people even me that are using this to test. I never had a problem with it. Just keep Kaspersky near by ;)

No. With unknown malware I don't ever get too friendly with the HOST O/S. :open_file: All malware is uploaded to VirusTotal and then to:

samples@superantispyware.com
newvirus@kaspersky.com
virus@avira.com

It may be overkill, but I want to make sure.

I knew that would draw fire here, but I am also a "fan" of AntiVir. I think they have a good product that deserves to reap the benefits of my catches.

I use KAV 6.0.2.621, but I have tested 7.0.0.119 Beta against a trial version of AntiVir Premium and I still like Kaspersky better.
I guess I'm hooked. :open_file:
