BotHunter at www.bothunter.net is designed for this.  It's been a while since I looked, but I believe it is based on Snort.

One option is to generate your own by setting up a honeypot to collect  pcaps and  carve Malware files.

Dear Snort users, 

Any ideas from where can I get appropriate botnet datasets (network traces from infected machines) which i can test against my Snort set-up? I am particularly interested in P2P based botnets.

On a side note, any ideas from where i can get source codes or exe files for the same?? I have no intention of launching attacks- just need them for learning purposes.
