Abstract

Computer worms are characterized by rapid propagation and intrusive network disruption. In this work, we analyze the network behavior of five Internet worms: Sasser, Slammer, Eternal Rocks, WannaCry, and Petya. Through this analysis, we use a deep neural network to successfully classify network traces of these worms along with normal traffic. Our hybrid approach includes a visualization that allows for further analysis and tracing of the network behavior of detected worms.
