Significant interest has been raised recently in wireless networks in modeling and dealing effectively with different types of attacks. In this paper, emphasis is placed on the attacker's perspective and based on a probabilistic framework we study intelligent strategies for spreading malicious software, in order to realize the potentials of such attacks. The considered attack schemes are based on the topology control capabilities of wireless nodes and may be realized either at the Network layer… CONTINUE READING
