Database of DIY Trojans and Bots

What does it take to search, locate and acquire free copies of the current generation of Trojan and Bot DIY construction kits? Practically nothing nowadays.

I noticed that its actually getting even easier to get your hands on these kinds of nefarious technologies this morning with the public availability of an online database from the folks over at Indetectables.
This new DIY Trojan and Bot database is currently online and serving up multiple public versions of the popular kits - such as Bifrost and Poison - along with a growing selection of plugin's for them. For example, if you're a Poison Trojan developer, the site hosts multiple versions ranging from 0.0 through to 3.2, along with the "free" plugins - such as "Firefox password recovery", WiFi scanning, host power controls and remote port scanning (to name a few).

If you're thinking of downloading the DIY kits and using them, remember the following:
1) Using them against a system you're unauthorized to access is illegal in most countries.
2) The probability that the DIY kits and/or the malware agents they create are backdoored is typically very high.
3) Your traffic to this database (and other similar sites) is logged, and those logs may be requested by legal authorities in the future.
