Abstract

Recently, economic scenario is often facing security breach that has heavy impact on the financial soundness of a company particularly, stock prices on firms. The utmost consequence being the whole business comes to a standstill. From the estimates attributed by the financial sector, it has been inferred that the loss incurred on virus and worms attack is said to have the greatest impact that hampers the prosperity of a business entity. Thus, security strategies attempt on revolving around the act of security breach, thereby targeting to curb the financial losses of a company totally or at least minimize the losses. If the operating system of the stock market or financial sector gets corrupted the whole system need to be formatted, a new operating system has to be reinstalled and the antivirus software tends to be useless in such cases. In this study, virus and worms are encountered using IPTraceback technique and network security is ensured. The effective integration of spectral analysis, worm detection and IPTraceback, alerts the user dynamically and kills the source which distributes the virus. Real time traffic data are used for evaluating the performance.
