Malicious software attacks, whether in the form of worms, spyware, malware, or computer viruses, have economically and productively impacted the state of information exchange throughout the interconnected world. The ability to proactively identify the threats or unauthorized activity that contradicts day-to- day activities, will allow initiation of defenses before a full threat infestation occurs. This paper describes a test networked system that has been built for our research projects involving Internet worm detection. The goal of the system is to simulate a global network containing heterogeneous systems; in turn, we may study the behaviors of various worms and to design effective strategies for predicting, detecting, and quarantining outbreaks. INTRODUCTION The mere utterance of Jerusalem, Michelangelo, Melissa, Sobig, Code Red or the economically devastating Loveletter will bring the most hardened networking conversations to a stop to hear what is stated. These devastating and destructive network forces rage through global networks affecting businesses, residences, and impeding the daily activities of all networked technology. Technologies that would decisively prevent the onset of these attacks have not yet been developed, nor has the activity of these destructive occurrences been exposed unless they first impede the “normal” operation of

JCSC 23, 4 (April 2008) 1 Known as “back-porting” and used to describe dated software versions being ported to newer platforms. 2 These processors consist of Intel's Pentium D and Core Duo line of x86/EMT64 processors containing the 'VT' CPU instruction set. These instructions are included on AMD's Athlon64 and Turion64 processors based on the Socket AM2 and Socket S1 respectively. 74
