New Worm Detection Technology

by Cyren Security Blog

Penn State University researches say they have developed anti-malware technology that can identify and contain worms in milliseconds rather than minutes. The name of this new technology is Proactive Worm Containment, and it focuses on analyzing packet rate, frequency of connections and diversity of connections to other networks, rather than relying on signature or pattern identification. One of the researchers says that the technology can react much more quickly than signature-based systems and it can quarantine attacks after just a few dozen infected packets sent out to other network.
The Proactive Worm Containment is now in testing.
Is it a new Zero-Minute Virus detection? I don’t know, but we definitely should keep an eye on it!
