Claim of US Patent No. 10,169,578

1. A migration service method for software modules, the method comprising:detecting a security flaw in a first environment in which the software modules are running, wherein the security flaw in the first environment is usable by an intrusion to intrude into the first environment, and wherein the security flaw is attributable to at least one of a software component in the first environment, a hardware component in the first environment, a version of a software component in the first environment, and a version of a hardware component in the first environment; and
when the security flaw is detected,
migrating the software modules or part of the software modules from the first environment to a second environment that differs from the first environment by not having the security flaw,
wherein detecting the security flaw in the first environment comprises:
monitoring security issues in a subscribed mailing list, on a web page, in a database or on a web forum; and
detecting the security flaw in the first environment based on whether or not the security issues are related to the software modules running on the first environment,
wherein migrating the software modules or part of the software modules from the first environment to the second environment further comprises:
identifying the software modules which are sensitive to the security flaw based on a pre-determined or calculated sensitivity rating; and
migrating the identified software modules from the first environment to the second environment.
