Alright - so I'm working on my AV program, and things are actually going quite well, but something just hit me: before I'm done, I'm going to need to actually get the information about the viruses. Is there a place or site where one can get a list of known virus signatures, or do all these companies just get their information from studying the virii themselves? Without the signatures all I'll be able to do is just look for potentially dangerous activity.
(lol - any way to decode the virus databases of other AV software? Ha ha)
