Twitter Inc Patent Reveals Plans To Block Malware On Mobile

Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) has been granted a patent for identifying the malware on mobile, according to a public filing this month. The patent filed back in 2012 revealed that the micro-blogging site could safeguard the users from malware with “an emulated mobile device to cause behaviors to occur that may be malicious.” When a non-human account visits a given mobile site, actions are stored into hard or soft signals.

Google already using similar technology

Twitter describes how the webpage can be tracked as being malicious or non- malicious by assessing the “probability of the webpage being malicious.” Also, the company explained how visitors on the site, the site developer and the distributor of the web page will be informed once the site is registered as malware.

The details of the patent are similar to what Google is already using within Google.com and Chrome. Google issues a warning to the user, and tries to block them from not using the page.
