Is there any good way of getting infected with malware and stay safe.
AFAIK Vitual machine are the best way to go about, but I am quiet not sure if that is the way to approach...

I want to observe various kinds of malwares behaviours...

Also where can I find the databases of latest viruses?

Thanks in advance...

I trust that your interest is in security research or testing.

As you say, a virtual environment is a good idea. Also keep your system isolated from the Internet and from any LAN you may have access to. Sandbox programs, such as Sandboxie and Returnil may also be useful.

As to finding malware, you will need to search for it. There are sites where you can find malware code, but it would probably be against forum rules to link them.

You might like to take a look at Metasploit, which is a framework for exploit analysis and penetration testing.
