Overview: This paper from Hewlett-Packard describes about traditional methods of addressing viruses, worms and other malicious code depends on signatures and patches. That leaves systems vulnerable to previously unknown threats until protective code can be written and deployed. At a time when viruses spread more quickly than ever before, often generating paralyzing amounts of network traffic, this is a significant lapse. To protect themselves from the onslaught of traffic generated by computer viruses, many corporations shut down portions of their network infrastructure; when they cant act fast enough, entire network subnets or even entire networks can be brought down by viruses.
