Squaring the circle

There are a few interesting ideas in this article, but the author is about ten years out of date on his knowlege of how modern malware works. It’s true that in a regional network scenario you may indeed see some pattern emerging from the relationship between locality and installation behaviour, but on a global scale this is pretty much unworkable.

However, what he’s essentially describiing is a way of using the meta-information that surrounds infection events, which is interesting particularly as more and more power is given to systems operating in the ‘cloud’.

    Non-specialists always “discover” what specialist knew ages ago. Sometimes, they do point at things that need to be pointed at or present a novel outside the box perspective. One can keep hoping for more of the latter. 🙂
