The Malware Database

Welcome, , to The Malware Database, the collaborative, public, free, and "open source" Wikia resource encyclopedia for information on computer malware, worms, and any other types of viruses or self-replicating malicious programs, and a great alternative to other virus wikis. This is one of the best resources for malware information.

This wiki has came so far since 2009, we have gotten up to 1,000 pages! We just have to remind you, that we want all Infotable Templates in pages about malware to be replaced with This Template. We would also like you to know that we prefer the term "Microsoft Windows" rather than "MS Windows". If you see any vandalism, please message an admin on their Talk Page or in chat. Vandalism is considered to be an instant one month to one year block, without warning. So if you even think about vandalising a page, consider this your only warning. For more updates check out this blog post: Godzilla Gamer's Blog. Announcements will happen weekly provided we have enough material to do so.

Another cool site you should check out:

https://malware101.wordpress.com/

Before editing any pages, we suggest that first-time users check out the Help pages. They are still mostly works in progress, but they can still provide some guidance in writing good entries, as well as inform readers about our rules and standards and our research. And also, you can contact our admins: TheMaster001, Satsuki8th, Alles Sandro, Godzilla Gamer, Deep-Fried Derp of Illuminati or LeTesla at their User Talkpage or chat (when online). The community is always there to help, too.

Be sure to read polices before editing pages: Malware Wiki:Sourcing Policy and Malware Wiki:Policy. Also check out the Malware Wiki Rules for the rules about this wiki. All users must read and comply to the rules, so excuses such as "I don't know the rules" will not be viable excuses.
