Microsoft’s Malware Protection Center

Microsoft introduced a new Malware Protection Center Portal - official Version 1- to the public. It offers an encyclopedia of malware where you will get the detailed information about, tools and resources for investigating threats, option to download Microsoft's latest antivirus and anti-spyware signatures, listings of the top threats and other tools.

You can get detailed analysis of various threats caused by the malicious software like it’s after effects and remedies to cure it etc from here. In addition, you can also submit files that are suspected of containing malware or potentially unwanted software to Microsoft using their online form (file size limited to 10Mb) and Microsoft Malware Protection Center will send you the results of the analysis on the submission.

With this effort, Microsoft plans to make its security division more open and public.
