Inbound Malware refers to threats that occur as a result of inbound traffic entering your network. Although an anti-virus system can help to safeguard, it cannot always prevent the appearance of an unfamiliar signature. This is because numerous types of malware are specifically developed to infiltrate the insider network server. Due to the high number of traffic data, the difficulties encountered in screening these inbound bad actors are frequently hard to evaluate. Since incoming connections can originate from a range of origins, the best approach to guarantee that inbound limitations are not allowing access to an inside system or protecting inbound security rules from "known-bad" behavior or activity is to utilize a combination of the two. Thus, utilizing the similarity technique with the recommendation system, the behavior activity data can be tracked, which aids in keeping bad actors out.

The model was implemented with the help of a support vector machine and the k-nearest neighbours approach. Then, using a recommendation mechanism prioritizes the level of danger. The attribute-based recommendation system operates here. As a result, these inbound traffic analyses will be used to prevent Malware.
