infection potential

The infection potential rating replaces the legacy contagion potential rating. It measures the ability of a program to replicate. In order for a malicious code to have a moderate to high infection potential, the malicious code must effectively target commonly deployed and potentially infectable computers. Infection Potential is based on a scale of 0 to 5.
