As the world becomes more and more interconnected, our everyday objects become part of the Internet of Things, and our lives get more and more mirrored in virtual reality, every piece of information, including misinformation, fake news and malware, can spread very fast practically anonymously. To suppress such uncontrolled spread, efficient computer systems and algorithms capable to track down such malicious information have to be developed. Currently, the most effective methods for source localization are based on observers which provide the times at which they detect the spread (1; 2). In the talk, two issues regarding maximum likelihood approach for location of the origin of spread will be addressed.
