The use of bots, scripts, or other methods to scrape data from the site, download samples at an excessive rate, or otherwise affecting the performance of the site, backend systems, or user experience will not be tolerated.

This site provides access to live malware. VirusShare is not responsible for any damage, infection, breach or other incident that may result from accessing this website and displaying or downloading information. Access is granted at your risk.
