We present a virus detection-and-removal service architecture for digital ecosystems which is inspired by biological ecosystems. This service becomes active as soon as a virus infection of a machine is identified. In a biological ecosystem, as a virus is found to be active, all organisms infected by it need to be identified and treated. In some cases, if they cannot be treated, the only option left is to isolate them and treat them until they are cured. Our approach follows the same idea. All the hosts present in the digital ecosystems, are provided the virus removal service using a host connection table stored at each host. Using our approach, a virus can be removed at a very fast speed from the entire ecosystem.
