Shin et al. analyzed the victims of botnets [40]. They collected IP addresses of hosts infected by three different botnets and analyzed the number of infected networks (/24 IP address space). The network level aggregation has been conducted to account for dynamic IP assignment. One of the analyzed botnets uses a selfpropagating approach (type I) and two use a distributed malware-propagation approach (type II). Shin et al. observed that most countries have similar share of type I and type II attacks.

Stuxnet worked via an initial socially engineered attack in which a memory stick infected with Stuxnet was introduced. The worm spread rapidly. When infecting a host, Stuxnet first checked to see if it was a particular kind of Siemens device often used in nuclear facilities. If it was, a dropper program dropped malicious code into the main() program loop of the Siemens controller.
