An audit of a web-hosting service’s malware scanning and detection capabilities could save thousands of dollars, according to a new study.
Researchers from New York University’s School of Computer Science and Engineering, led by Professor Yuji Kondo, used the malware-detection capabilities of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to analyze web hosts to understand the potential value of these services.
The researchers were able to identify a total of 4,852 domains on the web hosting market, including sites hosting software for mobile phones, PCs, and smart devices.
While the researchers analyzed these hosts using Google Cloud Search, their findings were based on a search engine that doesn’t perform malware-scanning or detection tasks.
“This is the first time that we have demonstrated a significant reduction in malware detection capabilities when searching for a web host,” Kondo said.
The researchers analyzed the host’s malware detection performance with a custom search engine, the PVS-Studio, and were able only to identify approximately 80% of the hosts’ malware detection abilities.
“For example, our malware detection analysis revealed that 80% (1,836 domains) of hosts were not malware-susceptible, which means that their malware detection ability was reduced by approximately 1,837% due to the search engine’s poor malware detection, or, as the researchers put it, ‘malware detection fatigue,'” the researchers wrote.
“The researchers further observed that this reduction in detection performance is only an indication of the fact that the host is not malware detection efficient, since malware detection is an inherently complex task.”
The researchers found that the average host was capable of performing malware detection in 4 minutes on average, which is a very low estimate, given that most hosts are only capable of running the most basic malware detection processes for 30 seconds.
While the study showed that the ability to scan and detect malware increased by an order of magnitude from less than 0.5 seconds to 4 minutes, the researchers found the effectiveness of malware detection was not a linear relationship.
The researchers used their own custom search algorithm, which they developed using their work, to test the effectiveness and performance of various malware detection algorithms.
The results showed that malware detection accuracy decreased from 2.5% to 0.8% over a period of 6 months, but malware detection fatigue decreased by over 6%.
“In our experience, the most successful and cost-effective malware detection methods involve the use of custom search engines, such as Google’s PVS,” Kondoh said.
“However, even if these search engines do not provide a good solution, it’s not impossible to build one, and this is the main reason why we chose the PVM search engine as a proxy.”
Google Cloud Platform is a service that is provided by the Google Cloud platform.
It is designed to allow enterprises to deploy and run cloud-based applications that run on the Google servers.
The platform has been around for a while and was originally developed for building Google Apps and Gmail, but it has recently been expanded to include a host of other applications and services, including YouTube, Facebook, and Amazon.com.
Google Cloud Search is used to conduct malware detection for all applications and hosted services that run in the Google cloud.
The software searches through web servers and databases for malware and analyzes the information in the data.
Kondoh’s group is planning to conduct further studies to further understand the impact of malware scanning on the effectiveness, cost, and efficiency of various hosting services.
