A method for upgrading one or more security applications, e.g., anti-spam, anti-virus, intrusion detection/prevention. The method includes deriving a second hardware logic from a security knowledge base. The method includes operating a computing system including a security device. The computer system is coupled to the one or more computer networks, e.g., local area networks, wide area networks, Internet. The security device has one or more security logic processors, which include one or more respective first hardware logic. The method transfers an FPGA image representative of at least the second hardware logic through the computer network to one or more first memory devices. The method includes temporarily halting one or more of the security logic processors at a predetermined portion of the stream of information according to a specific embodiment. The method includes loading the second hardware logic onto the one or more security logic processors while the one or more security logic processors have been paused. The method resumes the operation of the one or more security logic processors.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
