  • Patent number: 7640434
    Abstract: A system identifies undesirable content in responses sent to a user, such as in e-mail or in downloadable files, from an Internet or intranet site. The system utilizes a redirection program that identifies content requests from a user to a target server. The redirection program redirects the request to a proxy server that sends the request to the target server. Upon receipt of the response from the target server, the proxy server scans the response, which includes any attachments, for undesirable content, such as junk e-mails, computer viruses, pornographic material, and/or other undesirable content. The proxy server then acts upon the response, and any undesirable content, in accordance with default or user-defined parameters, such as removal of the undesirable content. The proxy server may then send the response, as modified, or a notification message to the redirection program forwarding to the user.

  • Patent number: 7496960
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for providing real-time tracking of virus information as reported from various computers on a distributed computer network. Each client computer on the distributed network contacts an anti-virus scanning site. The site provides a small program or applet that resides in temporary memory of the client computer. The client-user invokes the scan with supplied pattern updates for detecting recent viruses. When the scan has been completed, the user is prompted to supply a country of origin. The name of the virus, its frequency of occurrence, and the country are forwarded as a virus scan log to a virus tracking server, which receives the virus information and thereafter stores it in a database server, which is used to further calculate virus trace display information. A tracking user contacts the virus tracking server and receives map information, which traces the virus activity.

  • Patent number: 7012735
    Abstract: An electro-optic display comprises first and second substrates, and an adhesive layer and a layer of electro-optic material disposed between these substrates, the adhesive layer comprising a mixture of a polymeric adhesive material and an additive selected from a salt, a polyelectrolyte, a polymer electrolyte, a solid electrolyte, a conductive metal powder, a ferrofluid, a non-reactive solvent, a conductive organic compound, and combinations thereof. The additive enables the volume resistivity of the adhesive layer to be controlled. Also, in an encapsulated electrophoretic medium comprising capsules in a polymeric binder, the volume resistivity of the binder can be controlled in a similar manner.

  • Patent number: 6119165
    Abstract: In an Internet or Intranet environment, a proxy server (or router or intelligent switch or firewall) which supports a number of clients (e.g. web browsers) has additional functionality which allows it to deliver a software module to a particular client depending on characteristics of that client. This downloaded module is then executed by the client which sets up a bidirectional communications link between the proxy server and the client. This bidirectional link allows for instance a status display at the client, by use of a window on the client platform, indicating the current status of proxy server activity such as virus scanning, content filtering, bandwidth usage, etc. In other applications the downloaded module allows provision of a organizational bulletin board, news channel, or provider of common software patches.

  • Patent number: 5960170
    Abstract: The iterative detection and treatment of viruses using virus detection objects and virus treatment objects is disclosed. Pursuant to a request for a virus scan, a virus detection object is produced by a server and is transmitted to a client for execution. The client receives and executes the virus detection object, and the results are transmitted to the server. The server uses the results to produce an additional virus detection object which is also transmitted to the client and executed so that the results can be transmitted to the server. The iterative production and execution of virus detection objects is continued until a determination is made as to whether the targeted file or data includes a virus. Upon a determination that a targeted file or data includes a virus, a vaccine specifically tailored to the conditions presented at the client and the type of virus detected is produced, preferably in the form of a virus treatment object.

  • Patent number: 5889943
    Abstract: The detection and elimination of viruses on a computer network is disclosed. An apparatus for detecting and eliminating viruses which may be introduced by messages sent through a postal node of a network electronic mail system includes polling and retrieval modules in communication with the postal node to determine the presence of unscanned messages and to download data associated with them to a node for treatment by a virus analysis and treatment module. A method for detecting and eliminating viruses introduced by an electronic mail system includes polling the postal node for unscanned messages, downloading the messages into a memory of a node, and performing virus detection and analysis at the node.

  • Patent number: 5623600
    Abstract: A system for detecting and eliminating viruses on a computer network includes a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) proxy server, for controlling the transfer of files and a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) proxy server for controlling the transfer of mail messages through the system. The FTP proxy server and SMTP proxy server run concurrently with the normal operation of the system and operate in a manner such that viruses transmitted to or from the network in files and messages are detected before transfer into or from the system. The FTP proxy server and SMTP proxy server scan all incoming and outgoing files and messages, respectively before transfer for viruses and then transfer the files and messages, only if they do not contain any viruses.
