If an organization is infected by ZERO-day virus attack, their antivirus solutions would not be able to detect the same. (Antivirus solutions depends on the virus signature and behavior which could be obtained only after their teams know about it. Zero-day attack is the first attack and hence Antivirus teams are not aware about the same). Advanced Viruses have self-spreading capabilities. Such Virus scans the machines connected on network to find out vulnerabilities of the remote machines. It will propagate by exploiting the vulnerabilities.
Students should simulate a small network of 3 Windows-7 or 10 to demonstrate the virus spread. Use machines without any anti-virus installed. Develop a small program pretending as Virus. It should be able to find out vulnerability of other machines connected on network and spread itself of other machines.
