I have a Ubuntu installation running in VirtualBox. I have made a few modifications to it (some kernel modules and startup scripts) that I hope would make it very secure. Is there anyway I can test some malware on it? The virtual machine is versioned, so I can revert to a clean state easily.

    "Is there anyway I can test some malware on it?" I have no idea what you are asking. What do you mean? – schroeder Dec 4 '15 at 2:49

    Ubuntu (and pretty much all other operating systems) ship with reasonably secure defaults. What kinds of modifications did you make, and what attacks are those modifications supposed to protect against? – tlng05 Dec 4 '15 at 4:07
  • @schroeder Sample malware. Downloading viruses. Exposing it to worms. – Melab Dec 4 '15 at 5:33
  • I'm still confused. Just infect it with malware? – schroeder Dec 4 '15 at 5:37

Do you mean you want to get sample malware? According to the book Advanced Malware Analysis, there are a few public resource to get those like:

Open Malware (http://gtisc.gatech.edu/)

You can find out more in that book.
