What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Who:

VirusBay was created by malware researchers - for malware researchers.

The aim is knowledge sharing between organizations' SOC teams and researchers worldwide.

Why:

We have a friendly user interface for easy communication between researchers and organizations. 

How:

It's as simple as posting on other social platforms. Only here, you post your malware, its attack servers, malicious links and links to detailed articles where some version of the malware has been analyzed.

Risks and challenges

VirusBay is currently in beta testing. That means we're constantly improving and developing more and more features. Since we're in continuous mode, the platform might be buggy and not fully straight-forward for the user. To overcome this barrier we have prime test users whom we trust to QA the environment before its loaded into production.
In addition, we are very responsive with every bug or request.

VirusBay is a big challenge to make. It requires constant learning about user experience and requests. To meet these, we have our Twitter feed with weekly/monthly polls and updates. Users engage with their responses based on uploaded content, images and video.

We believe that malware researchers are adapting rapidly to VirusBay, however we have a long way ahead of us.
