2018 Analysis in Theory and Applications  
In this paper, a delayed nonresident computer virus model with graded infection rate is considered in which the following assumption is imposed: latent computers have lower infection ability than infectious computers. With the aid of the bifurcation theory, sufficient conditions for stability of the infected equilibrium of the model and existence of the Hopf bifurcation are established. In particular, explicit formulae which determine direction and stability of the Hopf bifurcation are derived
