Application: Malware detection based on user interactions (Patent ID: US20240104205A1)

The patent filed by Juniper Networks Inc. describes a method and device for detecting malware in files downloaded to user devices. The device obtains metadata based on user interactions with the file, tests the file in a sandbox environment using the metadata, and provides information to the user device indicating whether the file is malware. The user interactions can include actions performed when the file was accessed on the user device or other devices, and the testing involves executing a malware detection procedure.

The device can provide instructions to the user device to take actions such as changing register values, opening or closing ports, or network connections based on the testing results. Additionally, the device can generate notifications to inform the user device about the malware status of the file. The metadata captured by the user device includes interactions from other user devices that accessed the file previously, and the device can also provide instructions to undo any modifications made by the file. Overall, the system aims to enhance malware detection by utilizing user interactions and sandbox testing to determine the safety of downloaded files.
