Abstract: Systems and methods for intrusion and virus detection in computer networks. Data from a file, network byte stream, or other source is segmented and resulting data items are subjected to multiple processing techniques to obtain respective result values, or thumbprints. The multiple thumbprints for respective data items are then aggregated to obtain a single result value, or aggregate thumbprint. The components of the aggregate thumbprint may be “fuzzified” to allow for less preciseness in the single result value. The aggregate thumbprint is compared to other similarly generated aggregate thumbprints stored in a library. Alerts may be generated when the same aggregate thumbprint is detected multiple times.
Abstract: A system and a method create metadata for media files. The metadata may be information relating to, based on and/or associated with the media files. The metadata of the media files may be searched by one or more terminals. An event database connectable to a terminal may use a location, a date and/or a time of creation of the media files to associate specific events with the media files. Further, the specific events may be used by the database to create keywords associated with the media files. As a result, the system and the method may organize and/or may provide searching for media files. A web page may be generated for an event that accumulates the media files related to the event.

Abstract: A method for searching for a travel product having one or more data elements associated therewith from a plurality of potentially suitable travel products in a system comprising a web based interface for receiving inputs from a user and from one or more sources of data, and for displaying results to a user based on the inputs; a business logic layer providing access to the sources of data in a predetermined manner, such as based on rules and preferences; and a database including data relating to the parties associated with the system; wherein the method comprises the steps of: entering one or more search parameters into the interface; launching multiple simultaneous searches based on the search criteria and one or more attribute of the travel product to the one or more sources of data to identify the potentially suitable travel products; displaying the potentially suitable travel products on the interface; selecting one or more of the potentially suitable travel products for further processing; further proces

Abstract: An asset management system includes one or more information processors having a communication function and a management device, the information processor includes a search unit which searches for a network address converter for converting between a local IP address and a global IP address in a network, and a position information transmitting unit which transmits positional information including at least one of the global IP address of the searched network address converter and a domain name corresponding to the global IP address and identification information of the information processor to the management device, the management device includes a positional information registration unit which records the positional information received from the information processor in a position recording unit.
Abstract: A method includes receiving first parameters and second parameters for a comparison of a first multilevel bill of material and a second multilevel bill of material. Internal items based on the first parameters are compared to determine differences between the internal items in the first multilevel bill of material and the second multilevel bill of material. If an internal item matches in the first multilevel bill of material and the second multilevel bill of material, associations for the matched internal item are compared based on the second parameters to determine differences between the associations in the first multilevel bill of material and the second multilevel bill of material. A report is generated showing a result of the comparing of the internal items and the comparing of the associations, wherein the report shows unmatched internal items and unmatched associations for matched first items. The report can then be displayed.
Abstract: A system and method for predicting what content a user wants to view based on such user's previous behavior and actions, comprising: receiving a cookie for every content page template in a web site; receiving a request for service of a content page; sending the content requested to a requester; for each content page sent, retrieving the cookie from the user; assigning a unique identifier (ID) to each new requester and storing the ID in the cookie; recording each ID, IP address, referrer, and time of request from the server; and storing the data recorded in a buffer for a period of time before storing it more permanently in a client-specific database. The system can be monetized by receiving fees from end users for presenting the content preferences or by receiving fees form content providers that include advertising related to the content preferences.
Abstract: A method and system include obtaining at a first time a first image of a database having number portability records for each telephone number which has been ported between service providers. The first image is indicative of the LNP records in the database at the first time. At a second time a second image of the database is obtained. The second image is indicative of the records in the database at the second time. The first and second images are compared to determine migration of ported telephone numbers.

Abstract: User interfaces for conducting multi-query searches. These user interfaces also provide specific mechanisms for supporting multi-query searches including: saving/restoring search context; search-specific query history; a “keepers” bin for storing useful results; elimination of redundant results; re-ranking of common search results; integration of searching with navigation; pivoting on search results; collaboration among multiple searchers; user-generated content; support for generation of hypotheses; re-executing queries and executing standing queries; multi-monitor searching and automatic preparation of search summaries.

Abstract: Improved techniques for flow analysis in messaging systems are disclosed. For example, a method for finding correlations between messages of a system based on content includes the following steps. For one or more executions of the system, obtaining the messages of the system, wherein each message has a schema associated therewith. The messages are categorized into groups, wherein each group has a common schema. Pairs of messages from disparate groups are found wherein, for the messages of a pair, there is a feature in common in their contents.
Abstract: Multiple databases are accessed simultaneously by forwarding scripts in a parallel or “multi-threaded” manner. Results returned in response to the execution of multiple databases are then aggregated for display or storage purposes. These novel features allow for quicker and more efficient management, code deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of databases in computer networks, and permit the retrieval and aggregation of data from multiple databases.
