Tech Ministries is currently working with volunteers from Colonial Jobseekers to develop an application suite to automate many of the steps that are manually performed during a malware removal and prevention. Thorough malware removal and protection can be a very time consuming. Without these automated tools the response to threats can be delayed and the ability to service a larger quantity of computers is limited.
The application suite will address administrative tasks, metric collection, malware detection, tool selection, data collection of computer specifications/configurations and script execution to clean and optimize the computer. Three main modules will integrate to achieve these services.
Administrative module will provide automated metric collection from clients, agents and other modules. It will also schedule agents and other modules to perform actions based on met dependencies.
Monitoring module will utilize multiple data sources and scanning methods to detect potential malware infections and recommend to Administrative module most valuable tool to run next.
Scripting module will collect specifications about the computer’s capacities, capabilities, configurations and performance then report these metrics to the Administrative module. The Administrative module will then schedule the Scripting module to perform specific steps to run malware removal tools and optimization tools to clean and optimize the computer.
Through the generous contribution of time and knowledge of the Colonial Jobseekers volunteers, this software development project will be able to achieve these goals.
