Description

"SAFETY SYSTEM AND PORTABLE FILTER MODULE WITH SEVERAL CONNECTION MEANS FOR READING, VIRUS IDENTIFICATION AND REMOVAL FROM DATA TRANSPORT DEVICES AND COMPUTERS IN

GENERAL" ,

The present invention provides a safety system and. product as a portable filter module applied for reading, identification and removal of virus existing in data (information) transport devices, such as pen-drives, microcomputers, notebooks, mobile phones and other apparatuses, wherein said system includes a computer program having several antiviruses, previously installed or real-time updated, upon filter module use, whose said portable filter module is equipped with several connection means, allowing coupling of several kinds of apparatus for data transport device and/or computers scanning before the data transfer, as well as promotes infected data transport devices and/or computers healing.

FIELD OF THE ART

The creation of mobile and portable data transport devices triggered the creation of several threats to computerized systems, and this is a concern in computers time. As those data transport devices grow, such as pen- drives, mobile phones, cameras, notebooks and the like, as well as access to operating systems, Internet servers or known applications installed on most computers worldwide gets easier, the communication network increased data interchange, resulting in the infection of uncountable computers and said data transport devices.

For the aforementioned reason, and considering data query exchange in data transport devices computers within environments as schools, colleges, universities, the invasions of threats transported by users increased, when they connect their devices (mobile phone, cameras, GPS, memory cards, tablets, among other data transports) to several computers.

Those threats and infections took on several forms, and are usually related to computer virus, which, once installed in any device, infects the system to which it is connected, replicates itself and tries to spread to other computers, by using several auto-executable means, or other malicious codes forms. Some viruses are broadly known, such as "Time-bomb", programmed to become ertain times established by their creator (e.g.: "Friday 13th", "Michelangelo"); others are programmed to damage the system of infected users and start programming their viruses in such a way that they only replicate, without he purpose of causing severe damage to the system (Worms) ; or other additional ones, such as Tro ans, Hijackers (programs or scripts "hijacking" Internet browsers, among others.

On the other hand, current antiviruses are part of an operating system with applications which, usually installed in computers, analyze the data within the system and try to operate as per their characteristics, which may be by scanning known viruses, heuristic sensing, algorithmic search, integrity checking or other forms of execution.

However, it is known in the art that those analyses may not be a secure assurance for the system, as usually the computers or devices are not scanned or read by ail kinds of existing programming, thus, there is the huge disadvantage that the reading by installed antivirus (es ) does not detect all viruses effectively, allowing, then, threats to enter the system.

The scenario is still worse when computers are connected to one or more data transport devices, because, as it is known in the art , a large part of those devices are not read before the connect to computers , and might jeopardize all their security .

BACKGROUND OF THE ART

Several computer programs are already known in the art, which work as antiviruses, such as Norton

Antivirus Security®, AVG Internet Antivirus SEcurity® and others, mostly of the type installed in the equipment to be checked periodically.

Recently, Kaspersky Labs, a cybersecurity group with headquarters in Russia, was granted the patent for an antivirus via hardware, i.e., an apparatus trying to secure the computer by means of a physical element connected to its hard drive, below rootkit access. The solution proposed is providing the computer with an antivirus getting deeper than the virus can get. This is the apparatus as it was explained in the patent: An antivirus ( AV ) system based on an AV module implemented via hardware for healing infected computer systems and as a method for updating AV databases for healing infected systems. The hardware based AV system is located between a PC and a disk device. The hardware based system may be implemented as a separate device or may be incorporated to a disk controller. An AV database updating method uses a two-phase method. First, updating is transferred from a reliable utility to an AV system updating sector. Then, updates are validated within the AV system and AV database are updated. The AV system has its own CPU and memory, which may be used in conjunction with AV application.

The disadvantage of that system is that it is not available yet to be used in a itinerant way and provided with ail existing data transports.

PURPOSE AND OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION

Considering the requirements from national and international market, a portable filter module has been planned, which is intended to remove threats from data transports before they are connected to computers, household equipment and other electronic devices. The invention provides more security, as the portable filter module including the protection system comprises an independent hardware, capable of updating existing antiviruses at real time and of analyzing, out of any operating system or applications, any type of data transport device before it is connected to the computer. Hence , secure protection is provided to data transport , devices, equipment , household appliances , and the like . DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention comprises a security system and product as a portable filter module applied for reading,- identification and removal of virus existing in data (information; transport devices. Said filter module is intended to provide an on-line or off-line antivirus system to heal the infected data transports, analyze data correction and analyze correct operation.

The invention allows its user to transport the filter module anywhere, and it may have varying formats, such as a keychain, for easier handling, applied to equipment as computers, notebooks, mobile phones, household appliances, or even automobiles and anywhere else the user wishes or is required to use.

The invention provides a portable module which removes threats and recognizes any data transport device when it is connected to it, and which is automatically started or started by the user. The invention includes a security system comprising a database with several types of antiviruses capable of analyzing and filtering data (information) present in the transport devices, by comparing those antiviruses present in the database to extraction methods in digital signatures, malicious codes, malicious codes standards and the like, with the comparison to its database using several parameters , such as size, date, binary codes and the like .

The database is accessed when a device or equipment is connected to any of the filter module ports by means of two operating modes, namely: (a) off-line - the memories containing the antivirus listing are accessed by the filter module disconnected from the network; and (b) on-line - the database is updated at real-time remotely using several remote connection servers via cable or wireless network.

The portable filter module off-line mode works with a communication processor between the memories, communication ports and their input ports facing the several connectors in the data transport equipment .

When recognizing the equipment connected to their ports, the system checks if the device or equipment is working, and informs its status to the user by means of an interface, for example, via led, sound device or display. Thus, the system shows the user that the device or equipment reading process has automatically started, and so, the user, by means of the display interface and cleaning or quarantine buttons, may choose that:

The system automatically starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, removing them and continuing scanning;

Option CLEAR starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, deleting threats pointed out;

- Option "Quarantine" starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, compacting or making the threats found inoperable, by moving them to a specific folder named "QUARANTINE"; thus, after checking and monitoring, the user may analyze this folder later in his computer .

Invention mode "on-line", on its turn, works with a communication processor between memories, corctiu.n c3.tion DO! s and connection ports to data transport equipment .

When recognizing the equipment connect to one of its ports, the system checks, at first, if it is working, and informs such status to the user by means of visual or sound warnings, indicating, thereafter, that device scanning is automatically started via remote communication. At that time the portable filter module connects to several servers for on-line analysis of data from the equipment connected, allowing the user, by using the display and other control buttons, to choose:

- automatic mode where the system starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, removing them and continuing scanning ;

- Option Clear starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, automatically deleting the threats ;

- Option "Quarantine" starts monitoring and scanning for threats, and when finding them, warns the user by means of visual or sound warnings, compacting or making that threat found inoperable, by moving it to a specific folder named "QUARANTINE" ; thus, after checking and monitoring, the user may analyze this folder in his compute ;

The invention portable filter module may be developed in several formats, with several types of universal access ports for connecting electronic devices and equipment, with an interface to indicate equipment status to the user, checking them by the internal system of the filter module itself, located in internal memories, and it is executed by a processor fed by internal or external battery energy.

Said portable filter module, in a construction option, may be applied to computers, notebooks, household appliances, car dashboards, mobile phones, tablets, telephones and electronic equipment structures, regardless the equipment, by using only electrical power for feeding, ensuring, thus, higher security to the equipment, for being separated from an interconnection. This model may be considered an external filter for analysis of data transport devices or equipment, before they connect to other equipment.

Examples: A) - On the sides of his notebook, the user connects a data transport device, analyzes it with the module filter and then connects it to another notebook with higher security; B) installed on the side of household appliances, such as TV, with the same function; C) Car dashboard; 4) Mobile phone side; 5) Telephones; 6} Tablets; 8) every electronic equipment with data systems.

Although the exemplary environment described herein uses a pen-drive, a flash memory, a removable unit and other removable devices, it shall be considered by those skilled in the art any other types of data transport devices transporting and storing data / information, such as flash memory cards, external hard drive, portable computers, mobile phones, telephones and the like.

The portable filter module has an internal battery that may be charged via USB connection in the computer, USB or solar output source.

The filter module databases updating has a two-phase approach. First, updates are transferred via cable connected to a computer, which connects the database to the remote server , discharging, thus , new updates for internal memories, and another one via direct connection to the se ve , using a wire-provided or wireless network, discharging information obtained from internal memories.

Other characteristics and advantages of the invention will be defined in the following description, and will in part be visible from the description, or may be learned from practicing the invention.
