  • Patent number: 8739283
    Abstract: A computing device is capable of automatically detecting malware execution and cleaning the effects of malware execution using a malware repair module that is customized to the operating features and characteristics of the computing device. The computing device has software modules, hardware components, and network interfaces for accessing remote sources which, collectively, enable the device to restore itself after malware has executed on it. These modules, components, and interfaces may also enable the apparatus to delete the malware, if not entirely, at least partially so that it can no longer execute and cause further harm. The malware repair module is created from a detailed malware behavior data set retrieved from a remote malware behavior database and then modified to take into account specific operating features of the computing device. The repair module executes on a repair module execution engine and the effects of the malware on the device are minimized.
