The Lookout, Inc. patent solves the following problem:
There are many ways to protect computing assets from the damaging effects of viruses, malware, adware, exploits, and other computer contamination (also known collectively as the attack). Desktop, laptop and server computer enjoy many antivirus, network, and similar security software products that are able to identify security threats like exploits, viruses, and malware. The detection of known viruses and malware usually includes recognition software code signatures or definitions of known viruses and malware, to preserve these signature or definition of a computer database, and comparing the data with this signatures or definitions to determine whether or not the data contain a virus or malware. Noted previously unknown viruses and malware can usually involved analyzing data for certain behavior or following the killing of data to determine what it would do if allowed to run on the host system. Identifying new attacks is something of an update of virus definitions or virus signature database in the computer or to change the rules associated with an unknown virus / malware detection system. This is possible because computer hardware, software and memory resources to store and manage vast virus signature database, as well as the processing resources to perform complex analyzes and following a murder environment . The detection of success or other attacks that compromise a computer through a network often included identifying signatures of known exploits or attacks, keep a database of signatures protected computer, and comparing the data network of the signature to determine whether the data includes a security threat. Such as viruses and malware signatures, network attack signatures can be updated to recognize new threats to security. As noted previously, such a system was made possible because the computer’s computational and storage resources available to handle large attack signature database and network data to compare the number of signatures before approval.
Our analysis of this patent is as follows:
Lookout, Inc.’s patent US 9223973 B2 deals with System and method for attack and malware prevention.
A system and method for the prevention of malware attacks on mobile devices presented. A server receives data from a mobile communication device and to apply, with a known good part, cause the data to determine if the data is safe. When the data is determined to be safe, the data allowed to be processed by the mobile communication devices. When the data is determined to be unsafe, in a not well known part of equity used the data to determine if malicious data. The data were separated from the process of the mobile communication device when the malicious data is determined. When the data is not malicious, a decision about making an analysis of the data. If the decision component determines the data to be saved, the data allowed to be processed by the mobile communication devices. Otherwise, the data were separated from the process.
