If file-based malware sample can be downloaded from sites such as theZoo aka Malware DB or any sites as suggested here, what about fileless malware as it doesn't store it's copy in the hard disk?

If this is not the right site to ask, please let me know.


Fileless malware is a bit of a misnomer. Fileless malware is still stored on disk just not directly on the filesystem. For example on windows systems most of the time fileless malware is stored in the registry which is not apart of the filesystem proper. You can get those types of samples from the same sources you cited.
