See and know about the future threat s
As reported by ScienceBlog, the team designed and carried out an attack by a virus named “Chameleon”. The virus did not just spread quickly between homes and businesses, but avoided detection and targeted weakened points specifically.
The attack was a simulated one on Belfast and London, and revealed that the Chameleon virus behaved similarly to a natural virus like the common cold. It travelled through WiFi networks via access points (APs) and infected hosts fastest in densely populated areas, where multiple APs are clustered together.
