Artemios G. Voyiatzis, Dimitrios N. Serpanos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Conventional worms and super-worms focus on the infection of end-systems. They exploit network vulnerabilities and use the network resources only to route their processes appropriately. We describe a new class of super-worms which target to infect network resources and utilizes routing information to effectively partition the address space of Internet.
