Algorithm Stops Local Scanning Worms

Researchers at Penn State University have developed an algorithm that defends against the spread of local
scanning worms that search for hosts in “local” spaces within networks
or sub-networks. This strategy allows them access to hosts that are
clustered, which means once they infect one host, the rest can be can
