The Malware Database

Welcome, to The Malware Wiki, the collaborative, public, free, and free-to-edit Wiki for information on 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. Remember to read the Manual of Style before editing.

This wiki has came so far since 2009, we have gotten more than 1,000 pages. If you see any vandalism, please message an admin on their Talk Page or in chat. Vandalism is considered to be an instant one week, one month or one year block, without warning. So if you even think about vandalising a page, consider this your only warning.

Another cool site you should check out:

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 administrators: TheMaster001, Vegasfest56, Alles Sandro, Parzival Wolfram, LeTesla or ByteDaemon at their User Talkpage or Discord. The community is always there to help, too.

Be sure to read polices before editing pages, read the Sourcing policy and the Site Policy. All users must read and comply to the rules, so excuses such as "I don't know the rules" will not be viable excuses.
