I've got a system set up that I'm going to use to test spyware removal on. My only problem is that since I've done such a job keeping spyware off of my box, I have no idea as to how I can get it on the machine.
I'm doing some of the easy ones, like bonzi buddy, and I'm downloading every toolbar that I can think of. For starters, I'm also downloading every P2P program that I can think of, as well. My problem comes in is that I want to try and get homepage hijackers on there, and I want to get as many popups on this system as possible.
I'm starting out with an unpatched Windows ME installation, and then I'm going to move on with an unpatched Windows XP Home install. Do you guys know of any other places that I can hit up to actually infest my testbed boxen with spyware? Where have some of you guys been to? Note, though, that adult websites will not be considered. I would prefer not to spend my time hitting up those sites, no matter how much spyware I could get from them.
Also, if you have any suggestions for programs to test out, let me know. I'm starting out with Spybot, Adaware, and Pest Patrol, but I'd be interested in using others, no matter how good are bad. I just want to get an idea of which one really does the best, and how much it takes care of!
