  • Patent number: 10079847
    Abstract: A system and methods for correcting domain names in invalid email addresses are described herein. The method includes receiving email failure information including a bad domain name. The bad domain name is compared to valid domain names in a valid domain name database and a match distance of the bad domain name to valid domain names in the valid domain name database is evaluated. Confidence scores for the valid domain names are prepared based on the match distance. Valid domain names having confidence scores exceeding a domain match threshold are identified. A valid domain name with a confidence score exceeding the domain match threshold is selected. The method involves heuristics and machine learning. System administrator intervention may be received to assist in the selecting. An email note is sent to the corrected domain name.

  • Publication number: 20170228763
    Abstract: A system and methods for evaluating whether a public review matches another review is disclosed. The method includes obtaining a private review and a public review of a business. A likelihood the public review matches the private review is evaluated. The evaluation includes evaluating a match distance between text bodies, reviewer names, review dates and ratings in the public review and the private review. Evaluation rules are applied to determine the likelihood of a match.

  • Patent number: 7823205
    Abstract: A computer has protected resources presenting threat vectors that malicious software can use to attack the computer. A security module has monitoring components that monitor the protected resources to detect malicious software. The security module detects if a protected resource enters a steady security state. In response to a protected resource entering a steady state, the security module selectively disables the components that monitor the protected resource, thereby conserving the computing resources utilized by the security module and freeing the computing resources for other tasks. If the resource exits the steady security state, the security module temporarily blocks access to the resource while it enables the monitoring components for that resource.

  • Patent number: 7296293
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media utilize a benevolent worm (100) to assess computer security vulnerabilities, and to correct computer security vulnerabilities. A benevolent worm (100) attempts (301) to copy itself to a computer (201), in order to assess (303) potential security vulnerabilities of the computer (201). The benevolent worm (100) communicates information (203) concerning at least one security vulnerability of a computer (201) to a benevolent worm controller (205). The benevolent worm (100) can determine (1003) that a computer (201) has at least one security vulnerability which allowed installation of the benevolent worm (100). The benevolent worm (100) can correct (1005) at least one security vulnerability of the computer (201).

  • Patent number: 6230285
    Abstract: A boot failure recovery system operates to diagnose a failed system boot in a computer operating system which boots by bootstrapping from a boot sector (12) of a storage medium (10) using configuration information (82). The boot failure recovery system includes an agent (24) which monitors operating system files used during system boot and which stores information regarding changes to the system files to a change file. A repair module (22) analyzes the change file to determine the cause of the failed system boot. A boot check module (16) responds to initiation of a system boot by determining if a prior system boot was successful. Boot check module (16) causes execution of a first boot sector code module (16) upon occurrence of a successful prior system boot and causes execution of the repair module (22) upon occurrence of a failed prior system boot.

  • Patent number: 5944839
    Abstract: A system and method for the automated maintenance of a computer system. A scheduler periodically activates sensors. When activated, the sensors gather information about various aspects of the computer system. The sensors store this information in a knowledge database. The knowledge database also contains cases, questions, and actions. The cases describe potential computer problems and solutions. The questions are used to diagnose the problems while the actions describe steps that can be taken to solve the diagnosed problems. If the information gathered by the sensors indicates a problem with the computer system, then the sensors activate an artificial intelligence engine. The engine uses the information in the knowledge database to evaluate certain cases. If information necessary to evaluate a case is not in the knowledge database, then the engine activates a sensor to gather the information. As the cases are evaluated, the confidence levels of certain other cases, questions, and actions increase.

  • Patent number: 5319384
    Abstract: A graphical cursor in text mode is generated by replacing the characters on the display at positions under the cursor with new fonts comprising an image of the cursor superimposed on the image of the characters. The method of the present invention comprises the steps of: determining the new cursor position; restoring the characters at the old cursor position; saving a plurality of the characters near the new cursor position; building new fonts with the plurality of characters near the new cursor position and the cursor symbol; and replacing the plurality of characters at the new cursor position with the new fonts. The preferred method may further comprise the step of detecting the position and movement of the input device when mouse-type input devices are used.
