A new study published in the International Journal of Mathematics in Operational Research explores a new path for the propagation of viruses in a computer network. Anis Rezgui of Ecole Polytechnique de Tunisie and Carthage University in Tunisia introduces a novel approach that offers a rigorous way of modelling viral propagation mathematically. Researchers could use it to understand a network's global behavior when exposed to malware infection. The proposed approach focuses on the dynamics of each node in the network. This type of modelling aims to help researchers understand how a virus spreads so that they can develop more effective strategies for stopping it through network analysis. Implementing such a model into an antivirus system could halt zero-day infection. This article continues to discuss the study and introduction of a novel approach to modelling the spread of a virus in a computer network.
