Future worm epidemics might spread at unprecedented rates in high-speed networks. A comprehensive automated defense system will be the only way to contain new threats but could be too risky to implement without more reliable detection accuracy and better real-time traffic analysis. Although researchers continue to work on improving worm detection accuracy and real-time traffic analysis, a practical solution thus far remains elusive. One possible alternative is to try to prevent a worm from spreading rather than react to an existing epidemic.
