A human contact network (HCN) consists of individuals moving around and interacting with each other. In HCN, it is essential to detect malicious users who break the data delivery through terminating the data delivery or tampering with the data. Since malicious users will pay more but gain less when breaking the data delivery of opportunistic contacts, we focus on the non-opportunistic contacts that occur more frequently and stably. It is observed that people contact with each other more frequently if they have more social features in common. In this paper, we build up topology structure for HCN based on social features, and propose a graph theoretical comparison detection model to perform malicious users detection. Then we present an adaptive detection scheme based on Hamiltonian cycle decomposition. Also, we define comparison-0-string and comparison-1-string to improve the detection efficiency. Moreover, we perform scenario simulations on real data to realize the detected process of malicious users. Experiments show that, when the number of malicious users is bounded by the dimension of HCN, our scheme has a detection rate of 100% with both false positive rate and false negative rate being 0%, and the running cost is also very low when compared to baseline approaches. When the number of malicious users exceeds the bound, the detection rate of our scheme decreases slowly, while the false positive rate and false negative rate increase slowly, but they are still better than the baseline approaches.
