New Technology For Detecting Computer Viruses Without The Need For Specialized Software

 A team of researchers in France has come up with new technology to detect viruses on computers without the need for specialized software for this purpose.

This technology is based on a device for monitoring magnetic fields, and an oscilloscope for monitoring electromagnetic fingerprints of various viruses.


The idea is that any computer program emits electromagnetic waves when it is turned on. The patterns of these waves vary from program to program due to the different operating codes of each program.

The researchers of the Institute of Computer Science and random systems (IRISA) in France relied on this idea to create a new technology for monitoring viruses called "Raspberry Pi", where they measured the magnetic fields of known viruses using a particular device, and then analyzed them by an oscilloscope sensor unit.

When reviewing the results of the vibration sensor, the researchers found that each computer virus has a different electromagnetic fingerprint, so they fed these results into the virus monitor so that it can recognize any virus depending on the magnetic fields it emits.

Experiments have proven that the new technology could identify 99.82% of conventional viruses on computers, smartphones, and other electronic devices.

The study team confirmed - in statements to a website specialized in technology - that the new technology is characterized by the fact that it does not need to download any software on electronic devices, and is not affected by computer tricks that hackers may resort to hiding the presence of viruses inside various operating systems.

The researchers have ruled out the possibility of selling this new technology to consumers in the market, but it can be used in larger applications and servers.
