ACT: attachment chain tracing scheme for email virus detection and control
Modern society is highly dependent on the smooth and safe flow of information over communication and computer networks. Computer viruses and worms pose serious threats to the society by disrupting the normal information flow and collecting or destroying information without authorization. Compared to the effectiveness and ease of spreading worms and viruses, currently adopted defense schemes are slow to react and costly to implement. This paper proposes an automated email virus detection and control scheme using attachment chain tracing (ACT) technique. Based on conventional epidemiology, ACT detects virus propagation by identifying the existence of transmission chains in the network. It uses contact tracing to find epidemiological links between hosts. A soft quarantine scheme is proposed to control virus propagation. No virus signature information is needed for detection and quarantine. We also study the effect of delayed, limited immunization on the spread of viruses. We propose a pr...
