  • Publication number: 20200028876
    Abstract: A system and method exploit information gained by observing abnormal commonality factors from multiple accounts over a predetermined time frame. The presence of an abnormal commonality factor serves as an indication that a group of accounts may have been compromised by a common actor via information gained by successful phishing of multiple users' information to improperly gain access to their respective accounts. Once this commonality associated with phishing is detected, the system provides a mechanism and process to rapidly respond to the phishing-originated attack to minimize information security damage to the affected accounts.

  • Publication number: 20200028869
    Abstract: An approach is provided that automatically classify network traffic of web applications and services based on a dynamic analysis. The approach scans a resource that corresponds to a named network application and receives, as a result of the scan, network resource identifiers that are accessed by the named network application. Network traffic between users and network resources is monitored, with the monitoring resulting in a set of visited network resource identifiers. The set of resource identifiers is found by matching the visited network resource identifiers with the network resource identifiers returned by the scan. Each of the set of resource identifiers is then matched with the named application.

  • Patent number: 10537949
    Abstract: Elevation mechanisms for table saws and anti-backdrive mechanisms for use in elevation mechanisms for table saws are disclosed. The anti-backdrive mechanisms typically include three sub-assemblies: an input assembly, an output assembly, and a fixed assembly. The anti-backdrive mechanisms prevent a torque related to the output assembly from changing the blade elevation. For example, the weight of the blade and the structure supporting the blade is prevented from backdriving the elevation mechanism and allowing the blade to drop.

  • Patent number: 10534669
    Abstract: A data storage service stores a dataset on a set of storage nodes in accordance with a first encoding. A set of shards constituting quorum, and one or more additional shards, are stored on the storage nodes. The data storage system determines to store the dataset according to a second encoding, in which the second encoding has a greater number of shards. The data storage system reconfigures the storage of the dataset in accordance with the second encoding, such that the reconfigured storage forms additional shards for the second encoding by combining portions of shards of the first encoding.

  • Publication number: 20200007014
    Abstract: A novel method of manufacture and an improved construction of windings of a stator of an electrical machine are provided, which minimise the axial overhang length of the windings at an end of the stator. The invention further enables the conductor cross-section in the overhang region to be greater than when is passes through the core, which can improve overall electrical efficiency and thermal management in the stator. This is enabled by use of casting methods to cast pre-formed conductors outside of the stator core, and then inserting the cast conductors into slots of the stator core.
