Computer worm simulation (Sasser)

This video is a simulation of a worm infecting systems worldwide, as well as four networks configured with different security policies.

The globe (left) represents the worm's progress across the world. The diagram (right) shows how it affects different types of network.

The Sasser worm starts off slow but kicks into action halfway through the second day.


Read about (and visualise) more viruses and other threats.
