Abstract: This paper gives an overview of Virus Throttling, a new technique to limit the damage caused by fast spreading computer worms and viruses. Rather than preventing a machine becoming infected, the technique prevents the virus propagating further from the infected machine. This addresses the two main ways that viruses cause damage: the spread of the virus will be slowed (less machines infected) and the traffic created by the virus will be reduced(less likely to overload network infrastructure).
