Abstract

The spreading of viruses in networks with high clustering and degree correlations as found in the Internet graph was analyzed. The prevalence undergoes a phase transition at a finite threshold of the transmission probability for the susceptible-infected-susceptible model of epidemics. Results suggested that high clustering and degree correlations protected scale-free networks against the spreading of viruses when compared with the absence of a finite threshold in networks with purely random writing.
