Worm

A worm is designed to create large volumes of network traffic through self replication and distribution to other network nodes. Significant worms such as MyDoom and Sobig were responsible for grinding the Internet to a halt. Nowadays, anti-malware software and hardware is designed to spot the traffic patterns associated with a worm and mitigate the attack accordingly.
