A Model of Virus Infection Dynamics in Mobile Personal Area Network
Keywords:Mobile Devices, Mobile Network, Mobile Personal Area Network, Vulnerabilities,
AbstractIn this paper, the authors explore the mobile network security focused on the virus threat. Firstly, the authors explain the importance of mobile network security which sometimes not really takes into considerations by users. This paper then explains the virus threat of mobile devices virus where it explains how the viruses spread. The threats can be in three major forms namely the virus spreading via mobile personal area network, virus spreading via internet access and virus spreading via messaging. Lastly a model explains the dynamics of the infection on Mobile Network is introduced.
