ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a method of identifying potential malware on a system by spoofing actual malware characteristics, available from inventor John W. Ogilvie. This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of April 23rd, 2015.

“Computer malware is a threat to personal privacy and national security,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage. “This is a valuable portfolio to computer security companies and manufacturers of antivirus and anti-malware software.”

Key Characteristics & Benefits
This portfolio discloses a novel technique for identifying malware present on a computer system. Malware includes uninvited software which tries to hide. Examples of malware include rootkits, spyware, Trojans, backdoors, and other software which is designed to be surreptitiously installed and to then avoid detection and/or removal. Some malware uses filters to hide its components, so that the files, registry entries, or other indications of the malware’s presence on a system are hidden from view.

This technology utilizes a malware ‘spoof component’ which has some but not all of the malware characteristics, or an isolated harmless component of the malware itself, to identify the presence of malware on a system. The spoof component is placed on the suspect system, after which a listing is obtained and checked. If the spoof component does not appear in the listing, then it may have been filtered out by malware infecting the system, thereby revealing the malware's presence.

According to PCWorld, there was an average of 82,000 new malware threats per day in 2013. According to the Economic Times, global security software market revenues reached $19.2 billion in 2012.
