The significant research activity into the logarithmic analysis of complex networks will yield engines that will minimize virus propagation over networks. This task of virus propagation is a recurring subject and design of complex models will yield solutions used in a number of events not limited to and include its propagation, network immunization, resource management, capacity service distribution, dataflow, adoption of viral marketing amongst others. Machine learning, stochastic models are successfully employed to predict virus propagation and its effects on networks. This study employs SI-models for independent cascade and the dynamic models with Enron dataset (of e-mail addresses) and presents comparative result using varied machine models. It samples 25,000 e-mails of Enron dataset with Entropy and Information Gain computed to address issues of blocking, targeting and extent of virus spread on graphs. Study addressed the problem of the expected spread immunization and the expected epidemic spread minimization; but not the epidemic threshold (for space constraint).
