Computers just like humans are susceptible to illness and spreadable viruses. Since computer viruses act in the same manner as human viruses, researchers developed models to study the propagation of worms/viruses. In this work, we consider a model for such a computer worm consisting of differential equations. We will use the numerical methods learnt in the differential equation class to solve this model numerically to understand the phenomena.
