Device, method and program for preventing information leakage
Provided is a device for preventing information leakage including: a storage unit that stores message time, request source information, and request destination information in relation to each information requesting message; a unit that suspends a response message containing personal information in response messages in response to the information requesting messages, for a predetermined suspended time from a message time of the corresponding information requesting message; a unit that counts the number of information requesting messages transmitted from the same request source to the same destination and corresponding to the suspended response message on the basis of information stored in the storage unit; and a unit that, in the case where the counted number of the information requesting messages exceeds a predetermined threshold value, applies a protection process to the suspended response message so that the personal information contained in the suspended response message is not received by the request source.. .

Exclusive access control method and computer product
An exclusive access control method is executed by a computer having an operating system that when an excluded thread accesses a shared resource, executes a first exclusive access control process of prohibiting the excluded thread from attempting to access the shared resource until exclusive access control is released, the exclusive access control process being executed according to a number of attempts, by the excluded thread, to access the shared resources. The exclusive access control method includes counting by at least one second thread, including the excluded thread and different from a first thread, the number of attempts to access the shared resource, when the first thread executes a second exclusive access control process of allowing the excluded thread to attempt to access the shared resource until the excluded thread is permitted access; and storing to a memory area by the second thread, the counted number of attempts..

Compact automated cell counter
Biological cells in a liquid suspension are counted in an automated cell counter that focuses an image of the suspension on a digital imaging sensor that contains at least 4,000000 pixels each having an area of 2×2 μm or less and that images a field of view of at least 3 mm2. The sensor enables the counter to compress the optical components into an optical path of less than 20 cm in height when arranged vertically with no changes in direction of the optical path as a whole, and the entire instrument has a footprint of less than 300 cm2.
