Perhaps could append how the computer got infected as well.

Pro:

  1. Get to understand how a virus affects your computer.
  2. Preparing people for when a future attempt occurs.

Con:

  1. Servers took down, might no longer be relevant / valuable.
  2. Might be more Security.SE material.

Can AVI files contain a virus?

Some people might not be aware of this, as well as sites that want you to dowload codecs; awareness of this is pretty crucial, which is why I think this could also make up for a good QotW.

Many people assume such containers are safe, but it's never too late for a zero-day exploit.
