FBI attempts to create ultimate malware collection
The FBI is creating a collection of malware by reportedly inviting security vendors to give quotes on malicious software.
However, the listing on the Federal Business Opportunities website by the bureau's Investigative Analysis Unit (IAU) does not give hard specifics on how the software would be implemented.
According to the document that accompanies the listing, the IAU's purpose is to aid FBI investigations by providing technical support and analysis on computers, networks, and malicious software, the Verge reported.
The document further states that the collection of malware from multiple industry, law enforcement and research sources is critical to the success of the IAU.
