  • Patent number: 9769354
    Abstract: An efficient method and system to enhance digital acquisition devices for analog data is presented. The enhancements offered by the method and system are available to the user in local as well as in remote deployments yielding efficiency gains for a large variety of business processes. The quality enhancements of the acquired digital data are achieved efficiently by employing virtual reacquisition. The method of virtual reacquisition renders unnecessary the physical reacquisition of the analog data in case the digital data obtained by the acquisition device are of insufficient quality. The method and system allows multiple users to access the same acquisition device for analog data. In some embodiments, one or more users can virtually reacquire data provided by multiple analog or digital sources. The acquired raw data can be processed by each user according to his personal preferences and/or requirements.

  • Patent number: 9282117
    Abstract: A phishing classification model that detects a phishing website based on one or more feature vectors for the website is provided. The phishing classification model may operate on a server and may further select a website, generate a feature vector for a landing page of the website, create a feature vector for every iframe that is a descendent of the landing page, and derive a final feature vector from the feature vectors of the landing page and the descendent iframe pages. Further, machine learning techniques may be applied to generate, or train, a classification model based upon one or more known phishing websites. Based on the feature vector, the classification modeler may classify a website as either a phishing website or as a non-phishing website. Feedback in the form of human verification may further be incorporated.
