Correlation of biological and computer viruses through evolutionary game theory

by   Dimitris Kostadimas, et al.
Ionian University

Computer viruses have many similarities to biological viruses, and their association may offer new perspectives and new opportunities in the effort to tackle and even eradicate them. Evolutionary game theory has been established as a useful tool for modeling viral behaviors. This work attempts to correlate a well-known virus, namely Virlock, with the bacteriophage ϕ6. Furthermore, the paper suggests certain efficient strategies and practical ways that may reduce infection by Virlock and similar such viruses.
