Outlier detection is a fundamental issue in data mining, specifically it has been used to detect and remove anomalous objects from data. Outliers arise due to mechanical faults, changes in system behaviour, fraudulent behaviour, network intrusions or human errors. Firstly, this thesis presents a theoretical overview of outlier detection approaches. A novel outlier detection method is proposed and analyzed, it is called Clustering Outlier Removal (COR) algorithm. It provides efficient outlier detection and data clustering capabilities in the presence of outliers, and based on filtering of the data after clustering process. The algorithm of our outlier detection method is divided into two stages. The first stage provides k-means process. The main objective of the second stage is an iterative removal of objects, which are far away from their cluster centroids. The removal occurs according to a chosen threshold. Finally, we provide experimental results from the application of our algorithm on a KDD Cup1999 datasets to show its effectiveness and usefulness. The empirical results indicate that the proposed method was successful in detecting intrusions and promising in practice. We also compare COR algorithm with other available methods to show its important advantage against existing algorithms in outlier detection.
