  • Patent number: 10129285
    Abstract: The embodiments described in this disclosure may be adapted to detect and mitigate tainted content in network communications across client-server boundaries using a pair of complementary taint engines at both ends of the network. Methods, systems and computer readable storage media are adapted to receive request from a web application of a client system and generate standard responses. The header of the request can include a request taint value that can be evaluated to determine whether the request is a standard network transfer protocol request (e.g., HTTP request) or a multipart network transfer protocol request (e.g., a CTTP request). If the request is a multipart network transfer protocol request, a multipart network transfer protocol response can be constructing based on the generated standard network transfer protocol response, and client systems can be configured to detect tainted content based on the multipart network transfer protocol response.

  • Patent number: 10108336
    Abstract: A web rendering module in the operating system is used to render and display a web page. The web rendering module also generates layout data that describes the position and size of each visual element on the rendered web page. A web editing application uses the layout data to generate a native overlay. The native overlay is an arrangement of cells, and each cell has the same position and size as a respective visual element. The application displays the native overlay on top of the rendered web page so that each visual element on the web page is aligned with a cell in the native overlay. The cells in the native overlay are transparent so that the rendered web page remains visible to the user, but the native overlay captures any interactions that the user performs. The interactions are then processed to make a corresponding change to the web page.

  • Patent number: 10079854
    Abstract: Embodiments of methods, systems and storage media associated with mitigating the effects of client-side (customer) bot-like activity caused by code injected into an e-commerce web page in the customer's browser after it is received from the e-commerce server system. Rather than entirely block a selected account or device (IP address) of a legitimate customer, a more politic process to mitigate the effects of bot-like scripts is implemented by embedding a “protective script” into a web page before it is downloaded to a client device. The protective script intercepts attempts to inject new code into the page, and it may prevent the injection entirely, or modify the injected code to mitigate its impact, for example, by slowing down its operation. This process leaves the customer free to continue normal activities on the site without any adverse impact or penalty.

  • Patent number: 10021222
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a system in a first node that facilitates efficient packet forwarding. During operation, the system stores, in a storage device in a first node, a static dictionary comprising a mapping between a type and length (TL) string and a byte-aligned compressed replacement string. The system encodes the byte-aligned compressed replacement string based on an encoding technique to generate a bit-aligned encoded replacement string and stores a mapping between the encoded replacement string and the TL string in an encoded dictionary. If the system identifies the TL string in a packet, the system replaces the TL string with the encoded replacement string and transmits the packet to a second node storing the encoded dictionary in a local storage device, thereby facilitating bit-aligned compression of a TL string.
