A Mathematical View of Network-Based Suppressions of Worm Epidemics


When worms self replicate, their probe traffic increases the network load. It is known that some “bandwidthlimited” worms such as Slammer spread so rapidly that they impede their own progress by congesting the network. Existing worm epidemic models do not take into consideration the phenomenon of network congestion acting naturally to slow down the epidemic… (More)
