AVLeak
Also, AVLeak is a very smart idea. I do wish however, that more AV designers were putting more value into heuristics and design of behavioral analytics.

Infection monkey is a neat premise. I'd be curious if it would allow you to get granular enough to specify what type of threats to spin up on those virtual machines, and if so exactly how granular.
