  author={Zesheng Chen and Chuanyi Ji},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks},
Network security is an important task of network management. One threat to network security is malware (malicious software) propagation. One type of malware is called topological scanning that spreads based on topology information. The focus of this work is on modeling the spread of topological malwares, which is important for understanding their potential damages, and for developing countermeasures to protect the network infrastructure. Our model is motivated by probabilistic graphs, which… CONTINUE READING
