An epidemic is malicious code running on a subset of a community, a homogeneous set of instances of an application. Syzygy is an epidemic detection framework that looks for time-correlated anomalies, i.e., divergence from a model of dynamic behavior. We show mathematically and experimentally that, by leveraging the statistical properties of a large community, Syzygy is able to detect epidemics even under adverse conditions, such as when an exploit employs both mimicry and polymorphism.
