by Michael Bailey, Zakir Durumeric, Jing Zhang, Manish Karir, Mingyan Liu,

Summary : We systematically explore the widely held, anecdotal belief that mismanaged networks are responsible for a wide range of security incidents. Utilizing Internet-scale measurements and global feeds of malicious activities, we show a statistically significant correlation between mismanaged networks and networks that are responsible for malicious behavior on the Internet.
