Abstract

Internet worms present a threat on large spatial and short temporal scales. Given the severity of this threat, important research areas include improved methods of detection and defense against this virulent category of malicious code. This paper presents a survey of research in worm detection and defense. Existing methods are described and contrasted according to their strengths and weaknesses. This paper contributes to our understanding of the current worm detection and defense and provides focus for future research.
