For a mini-project for my degree i'm researching into Automatic virus/malware creation. I currently have TeraBit Virus Maker and Necro Virus Maker 4.0. My aim is to compare a few tools and write a report on how easy it is to create malware and virus'. However both of the virus makers previously mentioned have destructive and annoying script-kiddie functions/features available, however don't contain features which could potential help with targeted attacks e.g. keyloggers, remote administration features. etc.
Any resources, software or articles would be appreciated.
