These are the one's I'm prone to test with. They test most
features/capabilities of modern AV software but have no dangerous payload that
could come back to bite you if you happen to fail on of the tests.

Hi

   Is there is any place online from where i can download collection 
of viruses especially latest ones for testing purposes or there is 
any software available that create fake viruses or something like 
that. I read about certain newsgroups, where if you place your email 
address they send you viruses, but i want to be able to download 
them. Since yahoo gmail etc block viruses and doesnt allows to 
download them.

  Thank You
