Virus Collecting Magazine

from the intro to the first issue by VirusBuster:

Virus magazines oriented to virus coders have been really popular in the history of the vx scene, but really few stuff for virus collectors has been released since scene exists.

Most of the articles and stuff in any other shape oriented to collectors have been released individually and there have been a few attempts of doing a magazine for virus collecting community. It was many years ago, around 99 when Virus Trading Center group formed by VirusBuster, Shadow Seeker, Tally and Slage Hammer gathered several articles and put all them together inside "Virus Trading Center (VTC) Newsletter". This attempt of doing a magazine for collectors was not successful and it did not have a continuation. More recently some people from gathered several articles and other stuff like programs and also viral stuff into a magazine, but their work did not see the light and remained unreleased, not to mention it was not a fully focused virus collecting magazine.

Resuming... in over 10 years of vx scene there has not been a serious try to make a magazine for collectors and I thought it was time to finish that.

The magazine pretends to be an open channel for all virus collectors or anyone that can contribute in anyway. Contributions will be reviewed by the editor (that is me, VirusBuster) and they will be accepted or rejected depending if the stuff is interesting, new and accurate. Even members from antivirus industry and security field can participate if they want.

It is well known the "discrepancies" between several members of the virus collecting community and me but this magazine pretends to be a neutral zone where everybody have voice, so nobody will be rejected by his nick.

I animate all collectors to participate in this project so it will not be a "one man" work. Collectors also can request articles for specified themes that can be discussed and explained in future magazines.
