Improvement on Propagation Modeling of New Intelligent Botnet
In order to illustrate and analyze the different features between two-stage advanced botnet propagation modeling and multi time zones modeling, an improved honeypot-aware advanced botnet propagation model using multi time zones is proposed. The model is based on two-stage reconnaissance process and firstly induced the time zones factor, then the diurnal properties of regional variations in online vulnerable populations in multi-time zones is creatively given. Also the novel impact of recovery rate is concerned by simulation.
