    virus website- archive, database & forum

    Hey guys, has anybody ever had a problem with a virus? bet you have... ever wondered what exactly the virus/trojan/worm/downloader does?

    Bet you have... which is why I'm keen on starting up a web-based archive/forum for viruses. The idea is that we create a databasing system whereby we can catagorise & give browsers information on what the virus does and how to prevent it.

    Im thinking of a simple archival system, which I can write myself in PHP. However, it would be nice if I could get you guys from the forum involved. Whether it be through code or any contribution. Im also thinking of getting some mega-skilled programmers to write removal tools for trojans, as its become a huge difficulty removing them.

    I really think that if we combine forces the mind-power contained within these forums can create the most amazing archival system. This project is not about money, but about helping people out.

    If anyone is interested please drop me a email. geek[at]fiddlefax[dot]co[dot]za.

    peace & thanks for having a look at this thread.

    Look like this has been done already...

    Not trying to dissuade you, but this website's been collecting info for 13 years and the amount of work that would be required to duplicate this work seems to be enormous and unnecessary.
