Based on the CMC antivirus strategy proposed by Chen and Carley, a mixing propagation model of computer viruses and countermeasures is suggested. This model has two potential virus-free equilibria and two potential endemic equilibria. The existence and global stability of these equilibria are fully investigated. From the obtained results it can be deduced that the CMC strategy is efficacious in deracinating viruses.
