We review recent progress made in analyzing the spread of viruses and bugs in the internet. We describe how the use of a model that takes into account the complex inhomogeneity of the internet and its self organizing characteristics can lead to a better understanding of the persistence of some viruses compared to others. We discuss how a better understanding can lead to a more targetted antiviral and anti-bug solution.
