polyX Malware Research Community

polyX is a community of anti-malware researchers with a shared goal of making malware hard.

Join polyX to:

  • Get free access to malware samples & hunt capabilities.
  • Collaborate with like-minded researchers and experts.
  • Validate your malware detection ideas against real enterprise traffic.
  • Drink free beer (or beverage of your choice).


All polyX membership applications are reviewed by our team of community leaders. Applicants are asked to share their true names with the polyX administrators but are welcome to use pseudonyms within the community.

It may take a few days for a decision to be made on an application. The more information you’re able to provide, the faster we can approve.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the polyX community!
