The Internet application has been so popular in the recent times and the concepts of network worms are now the biggest threats to the network security researchers. The trend at which network structure variables and its related applications such as p2p network has given the malware on the internet an avenue to explore as rapidly as possible and to find ways from which they can propagate. Hence, the need for an accurate mathematical worm propagation model is of paramount desire for the internet. In this paper a conceptualized analysis of the worm propagation models are discussed for the different prevailing environments.
