The authors set up the analytical model through a highly abstract network environment and achieve the overall characteristics of the worm research purposes. In this paper, they analyze the factors affect worm scan and propagation in the cloud and put forward a novel cloud-based worm model: the MapReduce Divide-and-Conquer model (MRDC). They analyze the architecture and performance of MRDC worm contrast to code red, the hit-list worm, and flash worm, etc.
