  • Patent number: 9582335
    Abstract: In a computer system, processing of security-related tasks is delegated to various agent computers. According to various embodiments, a distributed computing service obtains task requests to be performed for the benefit of beneficiary computers, and delegates those tasks to one or more remote agent computers for processing. The delegation is based on a suitability determination as to whether each of the remote agent computers is suitable to perform the processing. Suitability can be based on an evaluation of such parameters as computing capacity and current availability of the remote agent computers against the various tasks to be performed and their corresponding computing resource requirements. This evaluation can be performed according to various embodiments by the agent computers, the distributed computing service, or by a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 9552478
    Abstract: A portable information device (PID) having a security module that conducts security-related functionality. At least some of the security-related functionality for the benefit of the PID is provided by a security team of at least one other PID. In one type of arrangement, when configured in a team processing mode, certain ones of the security functions or components operating for the benefit of the PID can be processed on one or more of the security team member devices. In another type of arrangement, the team of devices exchanges security-related information determined as a result of a single team member device's processing of one or more security-related tasks.

  • Patent number: 9361605
    Abstract: System for updating filtering rules for messages received by a plurality of users including a filtering rules database storing filtering rules for the users; means for distributing the filtering rules to the users; a user reputation database comprising a reputation weight for each user; and means for receiving and processing of user reports that indicate that a message belongs to a particular category. The means for receiving (i) calculates a message weight in its category based on a number of reports received from multiple users and a reputation weights of those users, (ii) decides whether the message belongs to the particular category if the message weight exceeds a predefined threshold, (iii) updates the filtering rules in the filtering rules database based on the deciding, and (iv) distributes the updated filtering rules from the filtering rules database to the users using the means for distributing.

  • Patent number: 8370946
    Abstract: A portable information device includes a dynamically configurable security arrangement in which operational settings are automatically and dynamically configured based on a current set of security risks to which the device is exposed, on a current computing capacity of the portable information device, or both. The operational settings can be adjusted to control which security services or functions are to be executed locally by portable information device, and which of the security services or functions are to be executed remotely on at least one computing device that is distinct from the portable information device.

  • Patent number: 8214904
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods and computer program products for detecting unknown security threats. In one example, a system receives from an antivirus application deployed on a user's computer information about an unknown security event associated with a software executing on the computer and a user's verdict indicating that the software is harmful or clean. The system identifies the user of the computer and a role of the user. The role indicates user's level of expertise in the field of computer security. If the user has a high level of expertise in computer security, the system accepts the user's verdict. If the user has a low level of expertise, the system analyzes the information about the security event to verify that the user's verdict is correct. If the user's verdict was accepted or verified to be correct, the system updates an antivirus database associated with the antivirus application.

  • Patent number: 8214905
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods and computer program products for dynamically allocating computing resources for processing security information. In one example, the system receives from an antivirus application deployed on a user's computer information about user's actions related to the security of said computer. The system analyzes the received information to determine user's level of expertise in the field of computer security. The system then classifies the user into one of two or more different roles based on the determined level of expertise. The system automatically selects, based on the user's role, configuration setting of the antivirus application for collecting information about security threats detected by the user. The system also automatically allocates and configures, based on the user's role, computing resources and services for processing information collected by the antivirus application deployed on the user's computer about security threats detected by the user.

  • Patent number: 8209758
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods and computer program products for classifying users of antivirus software based on user's level of expertise in the field of computer security. In one example, the system receives from antivirus software deployed on a user's computer information about security of the computer and history of user's usage of the software. The system categorizes the received information into categories based on (i) a number of computer threats detected by the user, (ii) a frequency of malware infections of the user's computer, and (iii) a level of user's proficiency with the antivirus software. The system then selects condition-action rules for each category of information and applies the selected rules to the categorized information to determine user's level of expertise in computer security. Finally, the system classifies the user as one of an expert or typical user based on the user's level of expertise.
