Three Million Samples

Today we added our three millionth sample to the Offensive Computing malware corpus. While three million pales in comparison to the total malware out there, we still have the largest openly available collection available on the open Internet.

The story of this site has had its ups and downs, and on multiple occasions it was on the brink of shutting down. Every time I heard from someone at a conference, or saw mention of the site in presentations in papers, this helped to keep us up and running. The resources needed to keep things moving have been interesting to deal with. Our commercial services have supported the ongoing maintenance of running a free malware archive.

Some changes are coming to the site Real Soon Now (TM) and I think now is a good time to share them with you. First, the storage and catalog software we have been running on has been sluggish for a long time. I'm about 80% through a rewrite of the underlying malware processing system that should get us to the next order of magnitude without problems. We have made some key partnerships with other open malware resources and we are beginning to put those into service soon. Second, our Reverse Engineering training is getting a massive rewrite. Currently we only do on-site offerings, but we are investigating the possibility of hosting at a more public general venue. Finally, the blog that you see here will be undergoing some changes.

Thank you to all of our customers, users, and supporters. Without you Offensive Computing would not be up and running today. Watch for more news coming soon.

Hey Danny,

Really happy to hear about all this,
I believe this will not only end up with 3M,
Researching malware is not only the studying code its about reading psychology and, moving towards safe computing in next chance.
Malware research gives a chance to code good.
keep it up, and we'll join you soon.
Thanks for leading us.


Look forward
