Try looking at http://securityresponse.symantec.com/ at some of their defintions. They have lots of virus codes listed. You can also try http://www.viruslist.com/en/viruses/encyclopedia Liz

Lol, but a word of warning, if you do download viruses, even if just to look at code. make sure you dont infect yourself. plenty of people do it by accident.

By the by, it's usually against the terms and conditions of your Internet Service Provider to purposely download or transmit viruses (and it's illegal), this might apply in some form to the code as well.
