Is there a website with the ability to search through viruses that will return detailed information on them? I can't seem to find one and I'm tired of only getting forums when I search for a specific virus on Google. I want to be able to look up a particular virus and read information about what that particular virus does/tries to do. Thanks guys.

It sounds like you are interested in something similar to the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), except for malware. I am not sure such a thing exists, but here are some similar repositories:

Perhaps it would be a good project to stand up a site that queries all of these repos and provides results from all of them in one place.
