Signature metrics for accurate and automated worm detection


This paper presents two simple algorithms, T<sc>ree</sc>C<sc>ount</sc> and S<sc>ender</sc>C<sc>ount</sc> that detect a broad range of exploit-based and email worms, respectively. These algorithms, when combined with automated payload fingerprinting, generate precise worm payload signatures. We show that fundamental traffic properties of most worms, such as… (More)
